Some of what we do
We believe in sharing our faith in practical ways. Here are some of the things we do to help in our community.
We believe that prayer changes things and we would love to pray for you.

A members of our congregation felt ‘no one should go to bed hungry’ and from this idea, a group got together to start to make this a reality.
We started the Community larder for anyone who is struggling to put food on the table. We do not ask for details of why you need help and no referral is needed. We aim to provide 2 days worth of food and can also offer referral to The Gate food bank, CAP debt relief or other services that may be needed. We rely on donations and support from individuals, the churches of Tillicoultry, the Community Council and Morrisons supermarket.
CAP Money is a simple, yet highly effective money management course that teaches people budgeting skills and a cash-based system that really works. This course will help anyone to get more in control of their finances, so they can save, give and prevent debt.
Tilly Baptist has partnered with Christians Against Poverty to offer CAP Money courses in our community. The service we offer is completely free.
Get in touch via the contact page to find out when the next course is running near to you.

The church is involved in a wide range of events within the local community.
For a number of years we have run an annual Community Quiz and started Tillicoultry Community Week. Community Week is a week in August of around 50 free events for the local community, run by a wide range of groups and people. We are also involved in Tilly Gala Day and many other community events during the year.
We also meet with the other churches in town at Easter, Christmas and other times, to celebrate together.
