The Bible Centre


"Each time we use The Bible Centre we always find it satisfactory and this time is the 3rd time we have used it , so that speaks for itself. The people who run it are friendly, always there when anything is needed. It's lovely, country outlook, fresh air, not far from Glasgow City and the Airport is 5 minutes nearby. In summer you can have bbq and outdoor activities. The place is clean, cosy and value for money. It caters for large groups down to couples retreats with the 12 en-suite rooms. Well recommended to other church groups and organisations. Is self catering and has 2 kitchens. The last time I was there was October 2013 and I felt Godís presence was there."

Jackie Chung from Glasgow Chinese Christian Church

"The Bible Centre is an excellent resource and we love coming here with groups of different ages from children to adults. It is such an encouragement to use a centre for events where the staff are caring, friendly and so helpful. Both halves are excellent and really good value. The cleanliness is first rate and the rooms and bunk rooms are so comfortable. The kitchens are very well stocked and the grounds are great. I cannot recommend this centre highly enough and thank God for the way in which it is run and available for groups to use."

Laura McKenzie from United Free Church of Scotland

"On behalf of the Scottish Christian Party I wish to thank you all for your help on Saturday 12th October in enabling our conference to run so smoothly. We appreciate your ready willingness Bruce to iron out any difficulties we may have come across. We all enjoyed our day at the Centre and hope it won't be the last time we meet up with you both. May the Lord continue to bless your every effort for Him"

John Cormack, Chairman of the Scottish Christian Party

"Just wanted to say thank you for everything you did for us during our 3 day Conference in April. Forward in Faith Ministries was blessed to be at the centre. We felt connected to the spirit of God and the atmosphere at the centre gave us a sense of peace and tranquility. We thank God for his provision as we have seen the renovations that you have done. We praise God; may he continue to sustain you and provide for the centre for years to come."
