…..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.

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!

Bible Studies

Martin Forrest will lead our Bible Studies this year on Tuesdays 15th, 22nd and 29th November. The subject will be A Spirituality for the Second Half of Life. As both the North and South Halls are fully booked, these will be held at 93 Stirling Drive at 7:30pm. Everyone (not just those in the second half of life!) is welcome. I am sure that Martin will provide us all with much food for thought.

New to You Sale

The Social Committee wishes to thank all those who helped and supported the New to You Sale in the South Hall on Saturday 5th November.

Taken while we could all stand upright.
It got horrendously boggy on the way back and we were almost on our knees by the end!!
