Due to the ongoing weather issues across Scotland we have decided to cancel the evening service tonight (Sunday 4 March 2018).  Please let people who would usually attend the evening service know that it is off.

The planned installation of our new heating system has now been postponed until early April 2018.

Heating system


This has now been cancelled due to the snow.

We will hopefully finally replace our heating system w/b Monday 5 March.

The Youth Fellowship have made alternative arrangements so will meet as usual on Friday at 7.30pm.  For details, please contact Kirsty or Jo.

The Airdrie Foodbank will be hosted at Calderbank Church of Scotland on Friday 9 March and will return to Airdrie Baptist the following week. Read More

Last clinic

Today we travelled to another new village for us. It was called Mollagunta. The people welcomed us with fireworks and a band. They were really pleased to see us and so grateful for the clinic.

This was an extremely poor village with no water. They have to travel four miles every day for clean water. Read More

Sunday at IREF

An early 7.30am start this morning at the Krishna River for the baptisms of young people who have become Christians at this week’s conference. It was lovely to see them take this step of commitment on a warm, misty morning as the sun came up. Read More

Silver jubilee

We had the final clinic in Repalle this morning. We have seen 641 people in total and 207 teeth have been extracted! We will go out to villages next week and do clinics there.

Today has been a very special and very busy day at IREF as the degree college is 25 years old. There was a big silver jubilee celebration with dancers, singers, food and many former students coming back to share what they are doing now and receive awards (some of them remembered Jason taking their teeth out when they were very young!).

Clinic and evangelistic march

Today we saw young people and adults in the medical clinic. All the younger children have now been seen.

It was another busy day with most adults queuing up to see Stewart, our optician. Glasses are very sought after and make a massive difference to people’s lives. Read More

Our oldest patient

Today’s clinic was busy, but particularly special, as we treated all the Ullipallem CDC kids and some adults from that village. We were able to remind them of the link with our own church and that we pray for them. Read More

Clinic day 2

Another really busy day in the clinic with almost 150 children coming through. The team worked really hard and were able to ease the pain of many of them.

The tents are being set up as the big evangelical youth conference starts tomorrow night. Read More

A service of Thanksgiving for the life of Alistair Hughen will be held in the Church on Monday 15th January at 1pm, followed by a short service of committal at New Monkland Cemetery.

Please remember all who grieve in your prayers at this time.

Clinic day 1

The day started with Lindsey and Lynn speaking at morning assembly at the school then the clinic was set up.

We saw almost 100 children this afternoon, many of whom received treatment unavailable to them otherwise. Everything ran smoothly. Read More

What a welcome!

We have arrived safely in Repalle!! The young people were all lined up and welcomed us with rose petals, fireworks and garlands. So lovely to see their excitement!

We are hoping for a good sleep tonight before we start in the clinic in the morning. Read More

Heating system replacement in January

We are upgrading our church heating system the week beginning Monday 22 January 2018.

The replacement will take all week to install and will mean that all groups that meet in the Church during that time will be cancelled, including Toddlers, JAM and the Airdrie Foodbank.

It is hoped that our Sunday services won’t be affected by this work but we will keep people informed of any changes.

Kirsty Lee is our new Youth Worker

We are delighted to announce the appointment of a new Youth Worker at Airdrie Baptist. Kirsty Lee will take up the new role in July 2017 and will be with us two days a week.

Kirsty will work with the Youth Fellowship on Friday nights and will also run the Bible Class on a Sunday morning.

A Livingston native, Kirsty is currently studying Theology at the Scottish Baptist College in Paisley. She hopes to pursue a career in youth work when she completes her course.

We’re sure you’ll join us in welcoming Kirsty to the fellowship.
