Hello and Welcome
This is the website for Cleish Parish Church and Fossoway Parish Church. Although both churches are independent of one another they are linked and so share the services of a minister, work collaboratively and share resources wherever possible.
Our website is full of interesting information about who we are, where we are and what we are doing, we hope you enjoy looking through these pages and that you find the information you are looking for.
A warm welcome awaits, at either church, if you should decide to join us for Sunday worship or any other events.
Our Church Buildings are Re-opening
During the past months due to the Corona Virus and Covid-19 restrictions, we had to cancel all our services of worship, meetings and events. We are very pleased to announce that both our Churches will be opening for a time of private prayer and reflection:

Our usual pattern of worship and church life has unavoidably been changed due the current pandemic restrictions. Whilst our church buildings have been closed the life and work of our churches very much continues through, email, phone, text, and ‘Zoom’ worship on Sunday mornings.
As parish minister for both churches, it is my great pleasure, on behalf of the elders and members of both churches to extend to you an invitation to join us.
Both of our congregations are a lively mix of people from diverse backgrounds with many interests and different abilities.
Although we have many similarities and common areas each of our churches has its own distinctive character and style and we are sure you will find a place that is comfortable for you.
We are committed to supporting our different communities in practical ways and spiritual ways. We seek to follow the way of Jesus Christ, to do his work and to bear his message in all we do. We welcome all to our Church family.
Our Church Family
You do not have to be a member to come to either of our church buildings. Our churches are open to all people and we invite you to join us at any of our services or meetings.
If, after due consideration and prayer, you feel you would like to consider committing yourself to following Jesus Christ and taking an active role in church life then please speak to the minister about the possibility of becoming a member of the church.
If you are a member of another church it is still possible to join our church or arrange for your membership to be transferred.
You may want to remain a member of another church but choose to be a part of our church family and life and so can become an adherent of our church.
