Witnessing to Jesus Christ in the Benarty Community

Summer Drive-In Meetings

Following the good response to the drive-in meetings at Lochore Meadows during lockdown, we are delighted to confirm that we plan to hold similar meetings during the Summer months this year.

From Sunday 4th June until Sunday 28th August, there will be a drive-in meeting at 6:30pm every Sunday night with 3 exceptions (noted below). We are very grateful to the park management for granting access to the same site as we used last year and look forward to welcoming you back to these meetings. The map below shows the location.

There are three Sundays that we will not be able to get the use of the park, these are:

  • 26 June – Benarty Gala Day
  • 24 July – Classic car rally
  • 14 August – ‘Bark in the Park’

All arrangements are made subject to the will of God.

Friday Night Meetings

Many thanks to all those who supported our short series of Friday night meetings in February. Craig Munro took us through 3 of the ‘laws’ in the Old Testament – The Law of the Nazarite, The Law of the Leper and The Law of the Red Heifer.

If you were not able to join us you may be interested to watch the videos on YouTube. You can find the links here. Please note that you may need to turn your volume up for the second broadcast – a minor technical hitch!

Special Gospel Meetings

We are planning to hold a weekly gospel meeting in the Miner’s Welfare Institute every Wednesday evening at 7:30pm starting Wednesday 9th February 2022. God willing we hope that these meetings will continue until at least the end of March.

The speakers will be Craig Munro from Crosshill and Stephen Graham from Lochore. Everyone will be made most welcome.

Conference 2021 Cancelled

We are very sorry to inform everyone that following the changes to the Covid Regulations announced by the Scottish Government today (21 December 2021), the venue for our conference has advised us that they are no longer able to accommodate us.

Following careful consideration we have concluded that it is not possible to re-organise the conference in an alternative venue while maintaining control over the numbers attending within the new limit of 200 people and with social distancing. We have reluctantly decided therefore that the conference this year has to be cancelled.

We appreciate that this will be a disappointment to many and that some have travel arrangements already made. As recently as last weekend the venue management were still of the view that the event could continue. The changes made today mean that they have taken the decision to cancel all events as 200 is not a viable number for them. We can only say that the Lord knows best.

And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

Isaiah 30.21

Almost Back to Normal

Please note that from Sunday 2 October 2021 we have recommenced holding a weekly gospel meeting in the gospel hall at 6.30pm every Sunday night. Although Social distancing is no longer a legal requirement, we have spaced our seating more widely than previously and ask all who attend to observe reasonable precautions. We are still required to wear a face-mask (except those who are medically exempt) even for singing and would ask for your cooperation with this.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our weekly services!

Tent Meetings Start Soon

Following recent relaxation in the covid restrictions in Scotland we plan, God willing, to be able to conduct some gospel meetings in the tent over this summer.

This is a new tent which is considerably larger than the previous one we had giving plenty of scope for social distancing. The tent has been pitched in its ‘usual’ position at The Whins, Nether Milton, Off Park Street, Crosshill KY5 8BH. The speakers will be Mr Craig Munro & Mr Jack Hay. Everyone will be made very welcome.


Sunday 8th August at 4pm
Monday 9th – Thursday 12th August at 7.30pm
Sunday 15th August at 4pm
Monday 16th – Thursday 19th August at 7.30pm

Please note that the drive-in meetings at Lochore Meadows will not take place on the two Sundays of the tent meetings.

Drive-In Meetings Recommencing

We are delighted to be able to announce that, God willing, the drive-in gospel meetings will recommence next Sunday (2 May) at Lochore Meadows Country Park at 4pm.

Drive into the main entrance to the Park and as you pass the ruin of Lochore Castle you should see stewards directing you to the site via a track to your left (opposite the golf club).

As before, we intend to also broadcast these meetings live although this time we will be using YouTube Live. We will endeavour to share a specific link ahead of the meetings but you should always be able to find live broadcasts on our YouTube Channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/GlencraigGospelHall

Hall Re-Opening

Update

From Monday 26th April 2021 the restriction on numbers is being removed although all other measures remain in place (social distancing and face-coverings).

Following changes in the Scottish Government’s COVID-19 regulations relating to Places of Worship, we will be able to re-open the hall for some meetings from Friday 26th March 2021. There are however, a number of restrictions that limit what we can do. Importantly, overall numbers are limited to 50 people including children, 2m social distancing between family groups must be observed and face coverings must be worn, except by those exempted for medical reasons.

For the time-being, our gospel services will remain as on-line broadcasts only as controlling total numbers would not be possible with these restrictions in place. You will be able to follow our live broadcasts and catch up with recent broadcasts on our YouTube channel. Live broadcasts will take place each Sunday at 4pm.

Check the diary section of this site for details of in-person meetings. If you would like to attend any of these, you will be most welcome but we would request:

  • Please let us know in advance using the Contact section of this site
  • Please do not come if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19
  • Please do wear a face-covering at all times unless you are exempt for medical reasons
  • Please respect 2m social distancing while inside the Gospel Hall

Technical Hitch!

Apologies to all who tried to tune in to our YouTube Live broadcast this afternoon. We had a technical problem that meant our broadcast didn’t go out live as planned. We did manage to record it though and it has now been uploaded to YouTube.

Friday Night Bible Teaching

Many readers will know that for a number of years we have held a series of Friday Night ministry meetings in the early months of each year. Naturally, given current restrictions we are unable to hold events like these in the hall at Glencraig but, Lord willing, we do intend to broadcast a series of five meetings on-line via our YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/GlencraigGospelHall.

Craig Munro intends to speak on Paul’s Missionary Journeys. The live broadcasts will take place each evening at 8pm on:

  • Friday 12 February – Acts 16: Philippi
  • Friday 19 February – Acts 17: Thessalonica
  • Friday 26 February – Acts 18: Corinth
  • Friday 5 March – Acts 19: Ephesus
  • Friday 12 March – Galatia

I would be grateful if you could share these details with the assembly and any others who may be interested in joining these events.

If you would like dial-in details for telephone access, please get in touch via the Contact section of this site. Please note that we have a limited number of telephone subscriptions available so please only use this option if YouTube is not possible.

You can find the video recordings of previous broadcasts here.

We will be putting a link to the YouTube videos up following each meeting. You will be able to find these here.
