A brief overview of who you can expect at our events

Rev. Bruce McDowall

Called to Park in 1999, Bruce has continually breathed new life into our community. He is both a moderniser yet sensitive to history, facilitating the transformation of Park into the flexible worshipping space we enjoy today. Bruce once commented that what drew him to Park was his certain belief that the spirit of the living God was at work there, and this strong conviction has enabled him to establish Park Church as an important rolemodel in the spirtual life of Uddingston.
Leading the congregation through a major refurbishment project in 2007, Bruce fought to keep Park Church as a witness in the community - a decision which ultimately caused us to leave the Church of Scotland and re-join our original denomination of the United Free Church of Scotland. Bruce is a true pastor who cares deeply for his flock and works tirelessly to meet the demand of this ministy, often in difficult circumstances.
As a church family we look forward to many more years together with Rev. William Bruce McDowall.
