New BUS Logo

Logo - full colour

28 Jun, 2020


From 29 June you will see the new BUS logo bringing a freshness to our communications.

The logo retains the gold and blue colours of our previous logo but has a simpler and cleaner shape. The meanings it suggests will vary from person to person, but what has mattered most to us as we developed this is:

  • The cross is at the centre
  • The gold colour at the top represents the kingship of Christ
  • The blue colour at the bottom suggests the water in which we are baptised
  • The somewhat global shape points to our commitment to the evangelisation of the world, starting where God has placed us in it

Many churches indicate their belonging to our Union by referring to the logo on noticeboards, headed paper etc. If you are able to update these references, please contact Jenny at the office for details of how to use the logo. We have intentionally retained the blue/yellow palette so that where churches are not able to do this in the short term, the use of the old logo will still be harmonious with the new one.

Praying for our Churches in 2021

I have been greatly inspired by our National Prayer Live gatherings over 2020 and we will be continuing this on a monthly basis into 2021. It is so good to unite together in prayer for our churches, our nation and our world.

2021 – Hope

2021 – Hope

Having crossed the threshold of a new year, with or without a lump of coal, what is it that we cherish as our hope for the months that lie ahead?

Carols by Torchlight in Newton Mearns!

Carols by Torchlight in Newton Mearns!

Carols by Candlelight would normally be a highlight during Advent for many people within in our community and church family but like many things in 2020 it just was not possible to have such an event within in our building. Rather than being discouraged we felt enlivened to create something new and different that everyone could participate in outside of the building and so Carols by Torchlight began to take shape.

Prayer is at the heart of our Union. The prayer calendar is a framework to help individuals or congregations pray for all our churches throughout the year.  Every Sunday evening several hundred people from our churches across Scotland join in our National Prayer Livestream.
