Crookston Baptist Church
 
 
Welcome to the

Crookston Baptist Church website.

We are a young church on the south-west side of Glasgow, that began meeting here at the Rosshall Academy in January 2010, and we were officially recognised as a church in June 2010.  In early February 2012, Crookston Baptist Church were accepted into the Baptist Union of Scotland.
We are learning what it is like to grow up in the mixed-up society we find ourselves in. The journey is often difficult, sometimes very painful but always thrilling as we see our God at work.

When you come to Crookston Baptist…

Come early, you will be welcomed at the door.

Both before the service, and afterwards, you can relax with us as we provide teas and coffees, along with a few soft drinks.  We also serve biscuits and frequently, cakes.

Our informal services start at 11am every Sunday, and last approximately an hour and a half, but like most churches, sometimes there is a degree of "flexibility" - I think that's how most preachers would like to see it described!  There is acrèche and children's/youth ministry available. We don't have an induction loop for the hard of hearing, but the sound system normally means an induction loop isn't necessary.

Our worship music is of a contemporary style, and as we currently have no minister, we use both local and in-house speakers as well as those travelling to us from further afield. Songs and other media are projected onto a video screen.  As we are using a building that doesn't belong to us, there is a lot of work done before and after services to set up and dismantle sound and video equipment, as well as preparing the area for use by the Academy the following day.  We are incredibly indebted to all those that work so hard.

Although the world and community within which we live is continually changing, our message and basis for hope for the future remains firmly centred around Jesus Christ.  He brings a message of peace and hope in an uncertain and ever-changing world. 

You may be old or young, single or married.

You may consider yourself to be comfortable, or finding the going, tough.

Whatever your circumstance, you can be sure of a warm welcome.

We are sure you won't feel bored or embarrassed.

You will be welcomed and respected,

And we trust you will want to come again.
 
For some, it may seem odd to go to church in our post-Christian society (if it could ever have been described as Christian), so we have begun to add some new pages, where a number of folks in the church will tell their stories about why they come to church, and what it means to them.
 
Our Motto for 2014:
I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. 
Isaiah 41:13
