“At the heart of our community, celebrating faith and living life to the full"


Gordon MacRaeThese are the words on the front page of our website and also on the cover of our magazine Prospect and our weekly Orders of Service. I think it is a perfect way of describing what we are about as Christians serving the communities of Stepps, the surrounding area and beyond. Jesus was there for everyone his presence among folk made them feel alive. 


The first story that John chooses to tell, in his version of Jesus’ story, is of Jesus and his followers participating in an ordinary family wedding. (John 2:1-11) We know the story of his first miracle: turning water into wine.

Jesus brought celebration to that day; changing litres and litres of dull, dank water into the finest of ruby red wines. That is what he does for us. He takes our ordinary lives, often dank and dull, and transforms us into those who feel exhilarated, vibrant and enthused…. And, you know, there is more than enough for all. I have done the arithmetic. The six jars of water each contained 30 gallons. That makes 180 gallons, 818 litres… that makes over a thousand bottles of fine wine… that is some party in anyone’s estimation!

Some party! That is what Jesus brings to the world.

That is what we offer for all who would come.

 “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10
