…..and thank you for your interest in our website.
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.
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!
Here is a recording of our Sunday Morning Service on 14 August 2022 on YouTube. This link will be on the website until next Sunday.
Christian Aid 2022 - Cadder 500 Update
Here are some pictures of the events on 11 June.
So far, just over £2,000 has been donated to the Just Giving page and I know there is more to come!
A great effort from all who have donated, took part or helped behind the scenes all of which is much appreciated.
If you wish to donate to our Christian Aid Appeal this year, one of the ways that you can do this is through a Just Giving Link set up by Ian Watt. If you give through Ian's kiltwalk link, the Hunter Foundation will add an extra 50% to your donation.
The Kiltwalk/Just Giving link is:
Queens Platinum Jubilee
The Fellowship Team put on a fun event to celebrate the Queens Platinum Jubilee on Saturday 28th May. Afternoon teas were served in the coffee shop and there were games and fun in the hall for our younger folks.
Growing Cadder Church
In Cadder Church we are working to focus on the Church of Scotland's 5 Marks of Mission to grow our future. The marks are Teach, Tell, Tend, Transform and Treasure. To help us achieve this the Kirk Session has decided to reshape what we do and how we do it. Our Vision is that in 5 years' time the spiritual life of the church will be growing strong and deep, offering multi-generational worship and fellowship opportunities. Please take a look at the information sheet Growing Cadder Church - Shape and Share the Future which tells you what is happening and how you can make a contribution.
Cadder Kids had a wonderful Mothers' Day production line in operation - have a look!

Cadder Church on YouTube
Cadder Church has its own YouTube channel, you can visit and subscribe if you wish. You can easily catch up on things you may have missed.
Our Minister also has a YouTube channel called Rev John's Ramblings where you can access his latest videos giving encouragement, hope and perspective through this national crisis.
Cadder Shopping Service
The Cadder shopping service has been running since March 2020 and has now made over 300 deliveries during the period of lockdown and more recent restrictions. After some discussion about the service, the church is going to continue to provide the shopping and prescription service in the upcoming months. The service is now being offered as a pastoral care service, not just in response to the current pandemic. So, for any shopping needs you may have as we go into the autumn, please just call the number below on either of the designated days.
We are making some changes to the way the service is provided. Through October and November 2020, the shopping line will be open to take orders from 10am to 5pm on a Monday and Thursday each week. We will have a new dedicated phone number for the service from Thursday, 1st October: 07539 015828. Gillian Crompton will still be taking shopping calls but this will allow someone else to take orders if Gillian happens to be unavailable.
Your shopping will be delivered within 48 hours of your order being placed. End of the month payment arrangements will continue as before.
Please do feel free to use the service whenever it could be of assistance to you.
