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.

ADULT EDUCATION COURSE: The first of our six meetings on the Teaching of Pope Francis is this Wednesday 28th January. On that evening I myself will be speaking about the Pope’s life and trying to provide a background for what will follow in the months between now and the end of June. 


EMBRACING CHANGE  The meetings which have been taking place in St Matthew’s Academy over the last year and really beginning to bear fruit now. Four groups of people from virtually every parish in the deanery have now met or are beginning to meet to look initially at four of the fifteen or so areas which have merged from the many discussions that have taken place. We will eventually address all the issues raised, but at the moment we are focusing on Young People, Outreach to the Poor, Spirituality and Formation for Ministry. On the parish website you will find details of this, including those who are currently members of each group. But if you are interested in being part of any of the groups please let me know. There is nothing exclusive about them.
