Scripture Union fund-raiser

Twice a year we take our Scripture Union groups to Lendrick Muir, SU's centre near Rumbling Bridge, for an adventure weekend (Primary School age kids in March and Secondary school pupils in November). They join with people their own age from SU groups across Lanarkshire and have a weekend of activities (climbing, biking, archery, forest challenges, night walk and bonfire, etc.), some bible studies, story-telling, a film and loads of fun and food. We do our best to subsidise the costs so no-one misses out. Our annual fund-raising coffee morning this year is Saturday, 3rd October from 10:00am to 12pm in Burnside Blairbeth Church of Scotland.


Welcome to High Blantyre Baptist Church!

We are a family Church with 24 members situated in the community of High Blantyre. The Church was formed in 1896 by Walter Wilson, a clerk to a local Mining company. Walter Wilson pastored the Church for 50 years. Over the years the Church has remained faithful to its original witness and purpose as a local Church. It is in full membership of the Baptist Union of Scotland.

The current Minister is Rev. Steve Younger. Born in 1959, he settled in High Blantyre in 1986. He continues to work full-time for the Church, while completing a PhD part-time at Glasgow University (in Education), as well as occasional lecturing and training for Education Authorities on 'Religious Observance'. He is a co-opted member of the Church of Scotland's Education Committee (2015-2017). The Church has a very active Children’s Programme and works closely with Scripture Union.
