Church of Scotland 'Burning Bush' Logo
Church of Scotland 'Burning Bush' Logo

Our Emblem was made by prisoners at HMP Shotts. The bush was made in the metal workshop and the art department painted the flames. We are very grateful for this kind donation.
The wording refers to the Book of Exodus in the Bible when Moses encountered the burning bush. No matter how much it burned, it was never consumed by the flames.
The Latin used in the emblem created by George Mossman roughly translates into:
Nec: it was not; tamen: however; consumebatur: it was not consumed.
The emblem also echoes the teachings of 16th century Reformer and preacher John Calvin who saw the burning bush as representative of the people of God: the Church which suffers in any age or place but against which not even the gates of Hell can prevail.

This circular Stained Glass window is North facing in the shape of a Rose. Below the circular window are the pipes of the pipe organ and below that the magnificent and extremely roomy pulpit. From here a succession of faithful biblical ministers have preached evangelical expository Sermons to souls hungering after the Gospel of Jesus Christ..

These windows represent the Sermon on the Mount, with illustrations of the Beatitudes. These were made in 1904 in memory of John Miller of Greenoakhill. Above the three lancet windows there is a circular Stained Glass window inscribed
"I have not come to destroy but to fulfill"


Kenmuir Church - The Communion Table
Kenmuir Church - The Communion Table

The Lord's Supper is dispensed from this Communion Table 4 times a year. It is NOT an altar. The altar was necessary in the Old Testament as this was the place of sacrifice, but in the Reformed Tradition, when Jesus Christ died on the cross at Calvary, this was the final sacrifice, never to be repeated. Instead Jesus instituted the sacrament of the Last Supper (or Communion) at a table, and instructed His followers to remember Him by the breaking of bread and drinking of wine as a sign of the breaking of His body and shedding of His blood for the forgiveness of sins for those that accept Him as their personal Lord and Saviour..
