Rev Dr. Ruth Morrison
Hello! Welcome to the website of Dalmuir Barclay Church. I’m delighted that you have found us. My name is Ruth and I’ve been the minister of this congregation for almost five years now. I am a parish minister and that means that I’m here for everyone, whatever your need. Whether that’s thinking about how to mark the arrival of a new baby, planning a wedding or renewing marriage vows, getting together to arrange a funeral, or simply chatting about some of the bigger question in life – it’s my privilege to be here for you.
We are a friendly bunch at DB, our worship is fairly informal and together there is plenty to be involved in. There is regular activities for children and young people (Sunday Café, holiday clubs, mini-youth group), events for all the family (Messy Church and nature trails), and times of fellowship and service out-with Sunday morning, because being a follower of Jesus is a Monday through to Sunday kind of affair!
So why not give me a call (0141 941 3317), drop me an e-mail () or come along and see for yourself what we are all about – one thing is for sure – you’ll receive a warm welcome.
There are over 200 people in our congregation from all areas of the town but mainly from Dalmuir, Mountblow and Old Kilpatrick.
Average Sunday morning attendances are around 80 including all age groups. The children are present for the first part of the service and then leave the service for their own classes. There are Creche facilities for pre-school age children at each service.
Tea/coffee is served each Sunday after our morning service providing a time for fellowship and conversation.
A Congregation with Charity
The congregation has a very big heart and provides much charitable giving, both locally and overseas. We have just completed a three year overseas mission programme supporting the Emanuel Hospice and the Christian Agency for Social Action (CASA) in Oradea, Romania for which we raised £18,000.
We also support local charities such as Erskine Hospital, St. Margaret of Scotland Hospice and the Preshal Trust. Once a month, we provide a short service of worship at Frank Downie House, a local care home.
A Congregation with Music
Music is an important part of our worship and we have an electronic piano/keyboard. Our services are enhanced by DB Voices, who periodically sing at the start of our service. The Church is fitted with a new sound system and there is an acoustic loop for those with hearing aids.
