Welcome to St James the Less Episcopal Church, Bishopbriggs.

We hope you will find something of interest on these pages and we look forward to welcoming you to one of our services or other events.

Summer

Everyone is very welcome to our regular Sunday worship which continues as usual over the summer – we would love to have you come and join us.  Over the summer holiday period church life tends to slow down with very little taking place mid-week this ensures everyone has the opportunity to make good use of our ‘summer’ weather and return to various activities refreshed.  There are no Thursday services in July and there will be Morning Prayer on a Thursday in August.  May everyone enjoy some time of relaxation over the coming weeks.
