History:
St Timothy's church is built in Motherwell NU 2 and the parish covers all twelve units of this vast area. The church building was dedicated by Bishop Bruce Evans on 17 December 1989 and the Rectory was built some years later and blessed by Bishop Eric Pike on 1 August 1993. An outstation of the church was built by the people who found they were living too far from the 'mother' church to be able to worship every Sunday so they now meet in a 'shack' in NU 8 and the Eucharist is celebrated there three times a month. St Timothy's is too small to cater for the about 450 families who belong to the parish so three services are held every Sunday. There is a lot of unemployment in the area which has hampered development.
