Sunday Worship

On Sunday 24th May 2015(Pentecost) we started a new pattern for our Sunday worship. Worship is from 5pm - 7pm.

At 5pm we gather to share afternoon tea or coffee and a chat.

From 6pm till 7pm we share a time of worship together.

Worship will no longer take place on a Sunday morning.

The idea behind making this change is that it makes it more possible for people in today's world to participate in worship. It allows all ages to be together as a community, and to share in a meal which, from the earliest days of the Christian Church, has been a significant part of its tradition. It also means that people, whatever their age, can use their Sundays as a day of rest, regeneration and renewal by having their Sunday given to them rather than 'taken away'.

Edinburgh North West Food Bank

A list of the type of goods that the food bank would like is on the notice board at the back of the church, (and is also available on this website by clicking on 'Goods for the Food Bank' at the top of this page). Or go straight to the North West Edinburgh Food Bank webpage. It contains their updated lists of 'Urgently Needed' 'Low on Stock' and 'Well Stocked' items. Donations can be brought to church and placed in the box for food bank donations on your right before you enter the sanctuary. Our donations are distributed at centres at the Pilton Community Health Project on Boswall Parkway and the Rannoch Centre in Clermiston. We have received a lovely thank you letter for our Food Bank donations and this can be seen on the notice board at the back of the Sanctuary.
