Welcome to Ardbeg Baptist Church

We are seeking to be a God-centred, Jesus-led, Spirit-filled, community on the Isle of Bute.  We are in King Street, Rothesay, by the castle.

We are proceeding towards the appointment of a new pastor, and our activities will carry on as normal in the meantime.

Our Sunday Morning Service is at 11.00 am and the Evening Service is at 5.30 pm.  We meet for Prayer and Bible Study on Wednesdays at 7.30 pm. We have a Coffee Morning every Saturday from 10.00 am to 12.00 pm.

All are welcome.  No requirement.  No obligation.  Why not join us?

Farewell to Rev. Ron Rye (21 September)

Ron looks forward to the next chapter in his life.

Ron looks forward to the next chapter in his life.

21st September was Ron’s last day as our Pastor.  His morning sermon, passionate throughout, and sometimes emotional, completed Paul’s letter to the Philippians on a note of thanksgiving.  In the evening, the church was packed for a praise service wishing him farewell.  Favourite hymns were sung with gusto, Bill Lavender delivered an appreciation, and presentations were made to Ron and Steph.  After the service, refreshments were enjoyed by all.

The church was full for Ron's farewell.
