ChaplaincyNursing Home

A short walk from the church is Victoria Care Home. A group from the church is most warmly welcomed each month when we lead a short service with the residents. This is usually followed by a blether and a catch up on the news.


At Auchinraith Primary School our chaplaincy is shared with Rev Steve Younger from High Blantyre Baptist Church. The school also uses the church for its services at Christmas and Easter and for its end-of-session Awards Ceremony. We were also delighted to be invited to be involved in their recent initiative on improving literacy.

Calderside Academy operates a larger team chaplaincy as it draws from both Blantyre and the Hillhouse/Fairhill areas of Hamilton. The chaplaincy team when fully-staffed comprises the ministers from:

Hillhouse Parish Church - currently vacant
Hamilton Trinity Parish Church - Rev Lindsay Turnbull
Blantyre Old Parish Church - Rev Sarah Ross
High Blantyre Baptist Church - Rev Steve Younger
Blantyre Livingstone/Blantyre St. Andrews - currently vacant

Regular assemblies are held and there is also a Cosy Cafe event held on a weekly basis and staffed by volunteers from the respective churches
