Located in the north part of Glasgow, Lambhill is an area with high rates of deprivation, addiction and crime, in particular gang culture.
The people of this area are proud of where they live and there is a good community spirit, as well as a high percentage of minority communities moving in.
The greatest need in this area however is a healthy, gospel-preaching church to reach the many lost souls, and there are eight schemes and close to 50,000 people in this part of Glasgow.
HOPE FOR LAMBHILL
Since October 2022 we have been able to use an old Gospel Mission Hall in Lambhill. This church had been witnessing in the area for over a hundred years and closed in the summer of 2022 with a handful of faithful members praying for the Lord to continue the work. While a shame that the ministry of this church had dwindled, we believe the Lord has answered all of our prayers by bringing us together to prayerfully rekindle the gospel work in this needy part of Glasgow.
We are currently re-building the foundations of the gospel witness and hope to re-establish a healthy gospel-centred church in Lambhill, while at the same time continuing to reach out to the wider area in the hope that we can plant new churches in the future.
The work is being led by Tommy & Lorne Millar, who live in neighbouring Maryhill and have a heart to see both communities transformed through the faithful gospel witness of a local church.
The real need right now is for mature Christians to come and serve in these areas, as our team are stretched across both projects.

Current needs for prayer:
- Give God thanks for Lambhill Evangelical Church building, a good base for us to use to reach out into the community.
- Pray for mature, gospel-minded Christians to move to the area and commit to the work. The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.
- Pray for God to prepare the hearts of the lost to receive the good news of Jesus.
- Pray for the Lord to strengthen us and equip us for the road ahead.
