Sunday School

Our Sunday School, Crèche and Youth Group run during the 11am Sunday service throughout the school year. Children and young people take part in the first part of the service then leave with the teachers to take part in their own activities in the church hall.

Any child aged from birth to 18 wishing to join us on a Sunday morning will be made very welcome.

The Sunday School and Youth Group allow the children to learn through play.    Not all children enjoy the same activities so we offer a choice of activities for the children to choose each week

The Church of Scotland Guild is a movement within the Church of Scotland which invites and encourages both women and men to commit their lives to Jesus Christ and enables them to express their faith in worship, prayer and action.   With around 23,000 members, the Guild is one Scotland's largest voluntary organisations. Although women make up the bulk of the membership, increasingly, men are becoming members and taking roles at local and national levels.   The guild's motto which is taken from Acts 27, verse 23 is "Whose we are and Whom we serve.
The Guild meets fortnightly in New St Andrew's on a Wednesday at 7.30pm in the Memorial Chapel.  The theme for the next three years is "One journey many roads", the first being "Seeking the way"

A warm welcome to some or all of the meetings.

1st Coatbridge Girls' Brigade

The Girls’ Brigade in Scotland (GBS) is a lively, vibrant organisation for girls and young women.   It is a volunteer led uniformed organisation which was founded on Christian principles over 120 years ago.   While the core values remain the same, the way in which things are done does not.   To do so would fail the girls and young women in membership today.   It is a modern progressive organisation open to girls of all faiths or none and operates throughout Scotland with 230 companies serving over 9,000 members in the communities of Scotland.

GB companies offer a safe place for girls and young women to meet, a place for fun, a place for learning, a place for challenge, a place for personal development and a place where every girl is valued irrespective of her background.

All sections follow a balanced, age appropriate programme offering educational, service, spiritual and physical elements, recognising the holistic approach.   The award scheme provides the opportunity for girls to learn new skills at an appropriate level to their ability in a fun, safe and secure environment,

All GB companies are affiliated to local churches and are an integral part of both church and local community.  Companies comprise three sections: Explorers, Juniors and Brigaders who meet each week to explore their own particular programme. 

Girls can join one of the three sections here in New St Andrew’s.

Explorers (P1 - P3)   Meeting on Tuesdays between 6.30pm and 8.00pm.
Making friends and having fun are key to girls of this age but GB offers new challenges through games, craft, physical activities and storytelling

Juniors (P4 - P7)   Meeting on Tuesdays between 6.30pm and 8.30pm.
Girls are encouraged to explore the world around them while building on their inter-personal skills.  The award programme offers a wide variety of challenging topics along with other areas such as games, music and drama.

Brigaders (S1 - S6)   Meeting on Tuesdays between 6.30 and 9.00pm.
Girls follow a programme designed to challenge them on every level – ability, belief, social responsibility and community engagement.  There are many opportunities open to young women at this stage of their GB journey and it is the case that the Brigader section offers something for everyone.
6th Coatbridge Rainbows, Brownies and Guides

Girlguiding Scotland has more than 60,000 members across Scotland with a mission to inspire and empower girls to be the best they can be.   All girls are amazing and can do anything they set their minds to.   Girlguiding Scotland encourages them to try new challenges and adventures.

Each new experience helps girls find out how much they’re capable of, learn skills that will give them a head start in life and make a positive difference to those around them.   Most importantly they have loads of fun and build brilliant friendships along the way.

Girlguiding Scotland has been helping girls push the limits for more than 100 years – listening to them and changing with the times to stay one step ahead.  Guiding can help girls achieve anything they set their minds to.  

Young Girlguiding Scotland members can join one of our four groups here in New St Andrew’s.

Rainbows (age 5 - 7)   Meeting on Fridays between 6.00pm and 7.00pm
Being a Rainbow is all about trying new things, having fun, becoming more confident and learning to be a new friend.

Brownies (age 7 - 10)   Meeting on Mondays between 6.00pm and 7.30pm
Girls who become Brownies get to go on adventures, learn new hobbies and explore the world around them – while making brilliant new friends and having loads of fun.

Guides (age 10 – 15)   Meeting on Mondays between 7.00pm and 9.00pm
Guides get the chance to get out there, make things happen and do something different – whether it’s adventure sports, camping (indoor and outdoor), travelling abroad or community action projects.

Senior Section (age 15– 25)   Meeting on Mondays between 7.00pm and 9.00pm
Being a member of The Senior Section is all about fun, friendship, and making your mark on the world in a way that suits you.
