Welcome to St Bride's Church, West Kilbride

St Bride's exists to be a community where men and women of faith gather to be fed by both the Word and the Eucharist so that they can go out into the world to be witnesses to the Resurrection and the presence of the Risen Jesus in the world and in history. This means doing everything we can to make the teachings of Jesus, as we read them in the four gospels, a living reality in society. Above all, this means reaching out to the poor in all their shapes and forms. But, for this to happen, we have to develop in ourselves a theology and a spirituality which enable us to move beyond the limitations of traditional religion and enter the much richer and more profound world of faith. This journey from religion to faith is at the heart of everything that happens in St Bride's.

Welfare for Parishes



Thank you to all those who made it possible to go away on holiday without any worry or anxiety about things here in the parish. In particular I would like to thank Fr Bill Russell for saying Mass each weekend, Tom Paterson for looking after things and making that possible and Paul McNulty for opening and closing the church every day. I am also grateful to Fr Eamonn Flynn who looked after a funeral last Monday. We can, as you know, go for a long time without funerals, but there have been three this week alone. So hopefully that will be us a for a while. Thanks to all these people, I had a truly great holiday in Spain and even crossed the border into Portugal for a while.
