Worship at Mossneuk

"let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name"

Hebrews 13:15

sunday morning worship

Every Sunday morning around 10 am, we begin worshipping God by doing something different: we drink coffee and we talk together. We believe that socialising and getting to know one another is a key ingredient for how we can love God in our community.

We worship in a very relaxed manner in the morning but the plain things are the main things: we sing, we pray, we learn what God's Word has to say, and we share together. 

You will often find different forms of worship in the morning, depending on when you come along. Sometimes, we have intergenerational services called explore!, the last Sunday of every month we celebrate the Lord's Supper, and we also often have Cafe Church in between!

Oh, and don't rush off. There are always refreshments available, and usually some cake to feast on whilst you chat.

so at 10am

what should i expect?

so at 10am

what should i expect?

expect a hand or a hug.

We truly believe in warm, family welcomes. You'll meet someone at the door who will talk to you, introduce themselves, and make sure you get a warm cup of something.

there are no formal rules.

There are no designated seating areas, nor are there rules about what you wear, or how you look. You can come to Jesus just as you are. It's also likely there are new folk around you, so don't be shy in saying hello!

you will hear the gospel

We are passionate about the gospel being shared, so you'll hear what we call a sermon. It lasts around 15-20 minutes and it may be on a subject you've never thought about before, but we encourage you to share in it with us.  You may even hear things that contrast with your own beliefs. God thinks very differently to all of us.

what we believe

The Church is a people, and it is a people who want to get to know God and have a relationship with him. We believe we do that by following His Son Jesus. There are specific things about God that we have to believe in order to be a Christian. Whilst there are some differences in how we express our faith, we do believe certain things about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit that are very different to anything else in the world.

About the Bible...

We teach that the Bible is God’s written revelation to humanity, and thus the 66 books of the Bible given to us by the Holy Spirit constitute (equally in all parts) the Word of God.

About God...

We teach that there is but one living and true God (Deuteronomy 6:4Isaiah 45:5-71 Corinthians 8:4), an infinite, all-knowing Spirit (John 4:24), perfect in all His attributes, one in essence, eternally existing in three Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:192 Corinthians 13:14)—each equally deserving worship and obedience.

About us...

We teach that humanity was directly and immediately created by God in His image and likeness. Humans were created free of sin with a rational nature, intelligence, volition, self-determination, and moral responsibility to God (Genesis 2:715-25James 3:9).

About Sin...

We teach that God’s intention in the creation of humanity was that all  should glorify God, enjoy God’s fellowship, live his life in the will of God, and by this accomplish God’s purpose for humanity in the world (Isaiah 43:7Colossians 1:16Revelation 4:11).

We teach that, because all people were in Adam, a nature corrupted by Adam’s sin has been transmitted to all people of all ages, Jesus Christ being the only exception. All of us are thus sinners by nature, by choice, and by divine declaration (Psalm 14:1-3Jeremiah 17:9Romans 3:9-18235:10-12).

About the Church...

We teach that all who place their faith in Jesus Christ are immediately placed by the Holy Spirit into one united spiritual Body, the church (1 Corinthians 12:12-13), the bride of Christ (2 Corinthians 11:2Ephesians 5:23-32Revelation 19:7-8), of which Christ is the Head (Ephesians 1:224:15Colossians 1:18).

We teach that the church is a unique spiritual organism designed by Christ, made up of all born-again believers in this present age (Ephesians 2:11-3:6). The church is distinct from Israel (1 Corinthians 10:32), a mystery not revealed until this age (Ephesians 3:1-65:32).

We teach that the establishment and continuity of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures (Acts 14:232720:1728Galatians 1:2Philippians 1:11 Thessalonians 1:12 Thessalonians 1:1) and that the members of the one spiritual Body are directed to associate themselves together in local assemblies (1 Corinthians 11:18-20Hebrews 10:25).

life events

There are so many beautiful events in life that are a total joy to share. All along the road of life, we have wee moments and big moments that God is really interested in being part of.  

Infant Baptism

We believe that Infant Baptism marks the beginning of a spiritual journey with God, a journey that should continue for the rest of your child’s life. Baptism is a special service for the children of committed, practicing Christians; it is a clear expression of faith in Jesus and a commitment of the church community to support your child on this journey.

We like to have Infant Baptisms as part of the Sunday 10 am Worship at Mossneuk Parish Church. If you are interested in discussing the baptism of your child, then let us by emailing the office above.

Blessing and Thanksgiving

A Thanksgiving Service is a celebration of God’s gift of parenthood.  It provides a special opportunity to thank God for the gift of your child.

This service differs from Infant Baptism because it does not formally mark your child’s entrance into the community of the Christian faith, nor does it require you to make a public declaration of your own personal faith in Jesus Christ or to make any promises regarding your ongoing and regular commitment to the life and worship of the Church.


A funeral is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on earth.

Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God’s keeping. These can be a small, quiet ceremony or a large occasion in a packed church.  Mossneuk Church wishes to stand by you and be with you during this difficult period in your life.

Funeral services conducted by George do not have to take place in the church building, and can be at different locations depending on the type and structure of the funeral.

Adult Baptism

During an Adult Baptism (or Believer’s Baptism) service those being baptised affirm their faith in Jesus Christ.  During the service the Minister will ask the person a number of questions, giving the opportunity to proclaim that they reject the devil and all rebellion against God, renounce their former life and repent of their sins. 

The person continues by affirming that they turn to Christ, submit to Christ as Lord and come to Christ, the way, the truth, and the life.

This service is not restricted to “adults”, it is for all who can personally proclaim their faith, be they adults, teenagers or children.

Please note: if you were baptised as a baby, we will not baptise you again.


Congratulations on your forthcoming marriage!

Mossneuk Parish Church wants to help and support you as you prepare for your special day. A church wedding will add a spiritual dimension to your marriage. The ceremony includes God and looks to him for help and guidance.

Ministers of the Church of Scotland are authorised to perform weddings. The Church does not regard marriage as a holy sacrament and ministers are free to marry people who are not members of the Church of Scotland.

However, if neither the bride nor groom is a member of the Church, the first approach should be to minister of the parish in which one or other of them resides. In places where parish boundaries are not obvious, the local presbytery clerk should be able to advise. In certain circumstances, the Church of Scotland permits the re-marriage of divorced people in the church. 

The minister has a very particular role to play in your wedding. They can blend ancient tradition and modern experience to reflect your story. Because of the relationship with the minister, your wedding can be made personal, memorable, meaningful, and beautiful.

To help you start preparing your wedding, download our booklet here and book a meeting with our minister.
