In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.
On the 2nd November 2014, Isaac Paul-Okoh became the third family member to get baptised. Isaac, who soon turns 17 years old, moved from Nigeria to Glasgow around six years ago. In this time he has matured as a teenager with a great love for God and love for others. It is incredible seeing family bonds strengthen through being bonded together with the love of Christ.
The church celebrated with Isaac with joyful song, prayers and sharing pizza together.

Last weekend, the Edinburgh International Church of Christ celebrated its 20th anniversary. Steve Kinnard, teacher in the New York City Church of Christ was the guest preacher and teacher for the weekend.
The celebration started on Friday evening with Steve teaching on having powerful Bible study, with Psalm 1 as the key verse:
1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
4 Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
On Saturday there was a breakfast meeting with Steve’s wife Leigh and then a Ceilidh in the evening.
Sunday saw many people worship God together and two powerful testimonies
We wish the Edinburgh Church well and ask that you remember them in your prayers that they can powerfully proclaim the gospel of Christ to the people of Edinburgh.
Christmas is almost here!
The last week has been busy. On Wednesday we had our church Christmas party in Kilwinning, Ayrshire, hosted by Linda. We had a wonderful time of eating together and playing a Christmas quiz. A hard fought contest and sincere congratulations to the winning team, and I am sure that it is pure coincidence that the quiz master’s wife was on the winning team!
Hot on the heels of our Christmas party was charity carol singing for HOPE worldwide in St. Enochs Shopping centre in Glasgow. In just over an hour we raised just over £135 for the homeless in the UK and the Bhuj primary school in India. Thank you to all the shoppers of Glasgow who gave so generously.
2011 has been a good year for the Glasgow Church of Christ and we eagerly wait in expectation to what God will do in 2012
Merry Christmas from the Glasgow Church of Christ
Sunday 25th September will truly be a day to remember! It was a fantastically joyous occasion as we celebrated 10 years of the Glasgow Church of Christ. The atmosphere was warm, the fellowship sweet, the worship reverent and the Word powerful.
By Faith the main church sanctuary had been booked (many thanks to KHPC for the use of their building) and our prayer had been to have over 100 people in attendance, and God did not disappoint; we saw over 80 adults (including 40 visitors) and more than 40 children come to worship God.
It was very special having Mulligan & Jo Price up with us too, who were able to witness all that God has been continuing to do in Glasgow since they led the mission team 10 years ago.
Praise God for all he has done and thanks to everyone for your prayers and support. However the work has only really just begun, let’s pray & work hard to bring in the harvest from such a monumental event.
We have been extremely blessed to have a nine minstry interns come to Glasgow for a week on their tour around different churches in the northern UK. We are very grateful for their sacrifical hearts to give up their time to help spread the word of God in Glasgow. They have come from around the USA and from Manchester and Reading in the UK.
During their time in Glasgow they have been talking to the people of Glasgow about their faith and sharing the gospel with them. Many people have had a chance to hear the Word beacause of their love and devotion. As a church we have been trying to give something back to them by equiping the interns with apologetics teaching on “How we got the Bible”, “Effective evangelism”, “The Case for Christ” and “Creation and Evolution”.
The interns have also had a chance to see a wee bit of Glasgow including Kevlingrove Museum, Riverside Museum and Loch Lomond.
God has certainly been using them during their time in Glasgow. Serval people are currently studying the bible and prayfully will make a decision to follow Christ and many others have expressed a desire to come City Centre Bible Discussions on Wednesday Lunchtimes or attend our Sunday worship service.
We wish them well and pray that they can continue to be used by God as they continue their tour to Edinburgh and Birmingham.
