Welcome to Drylaw Parish Church of Scotland, Edinburgh!


Next Service

Be a part of your local church in Drylaw; we believe you'll find it rewarding.

Edinburgh North West Food Bank

Visit the North West Edinburgh Food Bank webpage, and click on 'Give Help' and then 'Donate Food' to see the lists of 'Urgently Needed' 'Low on Stock' and 'Well Stocked' items. Baby food is second top of the list. 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 donated 235 kg of food to the food bank in 2015!

Mrs Eileen Brash awarded the Tam Tierney Award for 2015

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'.
