You can be married in our Church even if you are not members of the Church of Scotland or Kelvinside Hillhead Parish Church. If neither the bride nor groom is a member of the Church, the first approach should be to the Minister for advice.
With its beautiful central aisle the church is an ideal setting for a wedding ceremony. However, other options can be explored depending on individual
preferences – including a ceremony in a public or private building, e.g. a hotel.
Contact the Minister, Rev Marian Cowie, using the form below.
Baptism is the appointed way of entry into Christ’s Church.
In the Church of Scotland the sacrament of baptism can be celebrated at any stage of a person’s life.
In baptism, young or old, we are baptised into the love of God, the God who loved us before we loved Him. We baptise infants in the hope and expectation that they be brought up in the Christian Church and family of God.
Usually then our Minister is looking for signs that this is the parent’s intention in the case of a baby/child. If you do wish a child to be baptised, or to be baptised yourself, please contact Reverend Marian Cowie and the ministry team by using the contact form below.
Within the Church of Scotland we can also offer a service of blessing for our children if this your preference. We will be happy to discuss this with you.
At Messy Mardi Gras on Saturday morning we made and ate these pancakes – they are the drop scone type that are lovely with butter and jam, or stacked up and eaten with blueberries and syrup!
Makes about 12 small pancakes.
225g plain flour
2.5 tsps baking powder (or you can use self-raising flour, in which case only add a tsp of baking powder)
1 tablespoon of sugar
Pinch of salt
Enough milk to make the eggs up to 300ml
Note: if you make these in a large jug or a bowl with a lip, it’s much easier to pour the mixture into the pan than to use a spoon.
Mix the dry ingredients and make a well in the middle. Break the eggs into a measuring jug and add milk to make up to 300ml. Then add the milk & egg into the dry ingredients, a little at a time at first, so that you get a smooth batter.
You’re aiming for a similar thickness to double cream, so add less or more milk as required.
Heat a little oil or butter in a thick bottomed frying pan and pour in the batter to either make several small pancakes or one large one at a time.
The pancakes are ready for turning over when the tops are bubbling and the edges have started to set. The second side will take less time to cook – less than a minute in a hot pan.
