Welcome to Pollok Baptist Church!
We are a small community of folks from many different backgrounds & cultures, who are followers of the Lord Jesus.
Pollok Baptist Church is congregational in governance, and is a member of the Baptist Union of Scotland.
Pollok Baptist Church is in Glasgow’s Southside – opposite Silverburn Shopping Centre.
On Sunday 31st January 2016, Rev Harry Thomson preached his final sermon in Pollok Baptist. Harry & Christina have retired from the ministry, or at least retired from being full time in the Pastorate. Not sure that anyone actually retires in God’s work!
We will have a fuller report of Harry’s time in Pollok in due course, but in the mean time Harry sent this message to the family and friends of Pollok Baptist.
Thank you for your support and prayers and kindness to us as a family. We were very blessed in serving the Lord in Pollok over the last thirteen years.
I want to leave with you the deep feelings in my soul today. I was reading A Memoir of Dr Edward Payson and several sentences grabbed my attention. They express more eloquently than I can of what I want to say to the folks in Pollok Baptist at this time.
“I have done nothing myself. I have not fought, but Christ has fought for me; I have not run, but Christ has carried me; I have not worked, but Christ has wrought in me — Christ has done all.” “I find no satisfaction in looking at anything I have done; I want to leave all this behind — it is nothing — and fly to Christ to be clothed in His righteousness.”
Finally: “Remember the words which I spoke to you while I was present with you”;
Rev Harry and Christina Thomson
