Cadder Parish Church, Bishopbriggs.


…..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!

Presentation of Long Service Certificates

Cadder Parish Church is blessed with many people who have given unstinting service over many years, and the opportunity to recognise that service was taken on 19 March when Rev John MacGregor presented Long Service Certificates.

Seven members of the choir, who collectively have amassed around 250 years service, were joined by four others whose dedication has helped make Cadder what it is today.

Sincere thanks and many congratulations to each for their contributions over the years.

Rev John MacGregor

The induction of Rev John MacGregor as the new minister at Cadder took place on Thursday 16 February. It was a very special occasion, not only for the MacGregor family but also for the family of Cadder.

Rev John and Mrs Susan MacGregor

Following the retirement of Rev Graham Finch in October 2015, we have waited patiently for the right successor to come forward and in John MacGregor we have found the right man.

The church was full for the induction service and we were delighted to welcome not only representation from the Presbytery of Glasgow and our neighbouring congregations in Bishopbriggs but also a large contingent from Hillington Park church (John's previous charge) on a more informal basis at the South Hall for a reception/social.

We are indebted to the Rev Douglas Clark who was the locum minister during the vacancy and also to the Rev Martin Forrest, the Interim Moderator, who guided and supported us throughout the past 17 months.

Here are a couple of photos taken by Margaret Burniston during Kenmure Ramblers' walk on the Glen Ogle Trail on Saturday 29th October.

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!!
