Minister's Leave

Our minister is on annual leave from the 26th July till 8th August. Covering pastorally for him is Gordon McInally. If you need Gordon's pastoral services, his number is 0141 563 2685. His email is gmcinally at sky.com [remove spaces and replace 'at' with @ - this is to avoid Gordon being inundated with spam!]

Services on 2nd and 9th August

Our services for the 2nd and 9th of August are led by the Moderator of the Church of Scotland, Rev Dr. Martin Fair. Martin has produced two services for all ministers to use in the Church, so that they can take their break over the summer.

Morning Worship

Here is the Morning Service for Sunday, 9th August. This video can be watched at any time throughout the week.

Our apologies for last week's unexpected glitch! Business as usual from now on!

Update on Eventual Reopening of the Church

Rev John has written a letter to all Cadder Church members giving an update on the situation regarding the possible timescale for reopening of the church.

Included in the letter is information about the Dial a Cadder Church Service which has been set up for those who have no internet connection, so that they can keep connected with the weekly service. It can be accessed by calling 0141 280 1113. If you don't have an unlimited phone call package it is worth checking the details in Rev John's letter before dialling.

Life and Work Magazine

The Church of Scotland has decided to make a special complimentary edition of Life and Work, the Church's magazine, available to read online, or download.

Highlights from this issue include:

  • FEEDING THE HUNGRY: Reflection on foodbanks and impact of Covid-19
  • ‘GOD HAS NOT FINISHED WITH SCOTLAND’: The Moderator-Designate, the Rev Dr Martin Fair
  • ASSEMBLY CANCELLATION: Church’s business meeting cancelled for first time in over 300 years
  • WAR’S END: The role of churches in peace-building across Europe on the 75th anniversary of VE Day

Rev John now has his own YouTube site called Rev John's Ramblings where you can access his latest videos giving encouragement, hope and perspective through this national crisis.

You can also watch an uplifting message from him to help us in this challenging time.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

This box contains current information about decisions that have had to be made because of the coronavirus.

Please read this document which explains support, e.g. shopping or picking up prescriptions, which Cadder Church is offering to members and folk associated with Cadder.

Please note, there will be no Sunday Morning Worship until further notice.

Please read this news item about the cancellation of the next Climate Change Meeting and the Earth Hour event.

Cadder Church is part of the Church of Scotland. We have a long history but while we value our heritage, we are even more interested in facing up to the challenges of serving God today and tomorrow.

We have the privilege of worshipping in a lovely building in an amazingly peaceful location beside the Forth and Clyde Canal, surrounded by beautifully carved wood and high quality stained glass.

We also have the privilege and responsibility of serving God within the busy community of Bishopbriggs, of showing his love and goodness by caring for our neighbours in partnership with other churches. The panel on the left will tell you some of the stories of how we seek to do that.

Excerpts from our monthly Cadder Gazette can be found on the site.

We value our website visitors but if you live anywhere near or are visiting the area, please come and see us in person.

Thank you again for visiting our site. Explore and enjoy!
