You’re probably wondering what the title of the blog post is in relation to…well it’s in relation to where we worship!

bellshill cultural centreAs you may know, I worship at Bellshill Salvation Army, and a couple of months ago we moved out our own hall for about 9 months so refurbishment work could be done on our hall. In this interim period we are holding our Sunday morning worship meeting in the Bellshill Cultural Centre.

When I first heard where we would be holding our services, I thought this would be really strange and wondered if it was possible that our new temporary home could really feel like a place of worship.

Well almost 2 months on, and the Cultural Centre is home! It doesn’t matter that the building we are worshiping in was not built as a place of worship. It doesn’t matter that during the rest of the week other activities take place in the hall we use for worship on a Sunday. What matters is that God is there with us when we worship Him!

Matthew 18:20 (NIV)

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them

Why was I ever surprised that our new “home” wouldn’t feel like a place of worship!
