Hillhouse is a church in the outskirts of Hamilton. We are a friendly, happy going congregation of hard working people and we look forward to welcoming you to our worship any Sunday at 10.45.
You will be guaranteed of a warm welcome and hopefully stimulating worship but please feel free to navigate through our website, see what we are up to and see what’s happening in Hillhouse and we look forward to welcoming you to the church in due course.

Church Audio Visual System
The church now has a new audio visual system in place and it has proved very useful. Readings, hymns and prayers are readily accessible on the six screens and we extend a huge thanks to the team from Trinity Church who assisted with the system and to our own fabric committee who carried out the install.

Two students from the Tukido club held in the Hillhouse Parish Church Hall, brought back three medals each from the Tukido British Championships in Paisley in October. Craig Larson (29) won three Gold medals in the sparring form, free sparring and power test categories. Craig, from Larkhall, started training in Tukido in the mid 2000’s while studying Pharmacy at Strathclyde University.
The club’s newest member Paul Gallagher (13) won Gold for the White Belt sparring form division, silver for the junior sparring form and a bronze in the junior free sparring – an impressive win for his first competition, which took place at the Lagoon Leisure Centre in Paisley on Saturday the 4th of October.
Since 1983, the Martial Art of Tukido has been promoting health & fitness and self defence. With its emphasis on kicking and punching techniques, training in Tukido will boost stamina and improve flexibility and co-ordination in movement, while learning basic self-defence. A typical training session gives a student a full body workout, including abdominal and stretching exercises. If anyone from the congregation would like to take part, aged 12 or over, you are more than welcome to come along and try out a session or two, completely free, with no obligation to join. Classes are held in the church hall on Monday and Thursday evenings from 7pm til 8pm. For further information about the classes and Tukido in general, please call club instructor Andrew Newall on 07825 650456. You can also visit the website at www.tukido.com.
