Welcome to St Bride's Church, West Kilbride

St Bride's exists to be a community where men and women of faith gather to be fed by both the Word and the Eucharist so that they can go out into the world to be witnesses to the Resurrection and the presence of the Risen Jesus in the world and in history. This means doing everything we can to make the teachings of Jesus, as we read them in the four gospels, a living reality in society. Above all, this means reaching out to the poor in all their shapes and forms. But, for this to happen, we have to develop in ourselves a theology and a spirituality which enable us to move beyond the limitations of traditional religion and enter the much richer and more profound world of faith. This journey from religion to faith is at the heart of everything that happens in St Bride's.

Welfare for Parishes

Embracing Change

The next stage of this process will take place on Sunday 14th September when ten people from each parish will meet to go through the process described by the facilitators when we meet at the end of June. THIS IS A CHANGE OF DATE due to the unavailability of St Matthew’s Academy on the 7th. The large numbers that day meant that we could only achieve a certain amount of what we had in mind with the result that it was decided to have this further meeting with a more manageable number. This meeting will last four hours, from 2.00. – 6.00.p.m.

And so we need TEN VOLUNTEERS from the parish to represent us. The hope is that these will reflect different age-groups and different points of view and so will, as far as possible, be a reflection of the whole parish. So if you are willing to represent us at this meeting, please put your name on the list at the back of the church or let me know  me personally. I need to have the names by the end of August so that planning for the meeting can go ahead. Currently there are two names on the list. So what about YOU?
