Welcome

Coronavirus Information: Church reopening

We are delighted to announce that we are now able to open the church for public worship each Sunday at 11.15am. Services will be in an amended format and we have put necessary measures in place so that we can all follow good hygiene practice. 

We have decided to continue our online services for those that cannot make the in-church services and they will be released on Facebook/YouTube and on this website at 7pm each Sunday.

In church you will need to wear a face-mask and to sanitise your hands on entering the building. We are also required to take the name and phone number of anyone entering our church to comply with the Scottish Government's Test and Protect regulations. This information will be kept in a secure place. Our volunteers will be there to help you with this new situation.

We've created a short video to let you know about all the precautions we have in place, but if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us on admin@balfronchurch.org.uk.


For pastoral care needs please phone or email

Our prayers are with you all at this worrying time,


"This is what God says to you, who created you and formed you:
Do not be afraid, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name, you are mine."
(Isaiah 43:1)





You can send messages and prayer requests to us, and we will be posting bible verses and video clips.

You can also view the video clips on Youtube.


...and we will be putting news and other information on our "Kirk in Quarantine" section of the website.

There are also services of worship and religious programmes broadcast on Radio 4, Radio Scotland and other stations which may be of interest to our members and friends.







Our usual Sunday Worship starts at 11.15am and is an hour-long service of praise, prayer and the hearing of God’s word for the world.

Coffee and tea is available in the Church Rooms after the service and we warmly invite you to join us.

Transport to and from church can be arranged (contact us) and details of how to find us are on the Visiting page.
