Morning Worship

As services in the church cannot take place our minister, Rev John, will broadcast a video morning service each Sunday. Here is the Morning Service for Sunday, 24th May. This video can be watched at any time throughout the week.

[The above link is direct to our website - if you have any trouble viewing the video please click here to go direct to the copy on YouTube.]

Rev John has written a letter to all Cadder Church members talking about the present situation and giving some useful additional information.

Included in the letter is news of 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.

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 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!
