In this new chapter at KBC we are experiencing God deepen our bond of fellowship and care for each other in our church family. We have been blessed with many community links where we are seeking to bring God's love and truth through each of these. There are several ministries within the church that support our congregation, each of which are knowing God's renewed provision. All of this is overarched by our new vision statement; 'Growing Disciples Who Love Jesus.' Kirkintilloch is a small town ten miles north of Glasgow. We have a membership of 330 with a growing number attending on Sunday. We are grateful to have a wonderful team led by our Senior Pastor. We pray that God will lead us to the right person for the Associate Pastor role, at this time of refreshing and growth.
