We are delighted to welcome the Celebrate family to Scotland for the very first time. Our inaugural Celebrate Scotland weekend will be full of Spirit-filled moments that will enliven our faith and strengthen our relationship with the Risen Lord.

Our venue is the excellent St. Ninian’s High School in Giffnock and we want to thank Mr. John Doherty HT and his staff for the invaluable help they have given to host this event.

The weekend programme includes 3 main talks, praise and worship, seminars and workshops, Mass, dramas, Adoration, prayer ministry and time for chatting over a cup of tea.

So that parents with children can really benefit from the weekend, there is a full programme of activities designed to deepen the faith of all our young people from nursery age upwards. There is a welcoming crèche for the younger children in which the talks and events taking place in the main hall will be streamed so that parents who are with their under threes will miss nothing.


Sat 2nd Sept 2017, 09.00 - 21.00
Sun 3rd Sept 2017, 09.00 16.00
