Welcome to Drylaw Parish Church of Scotland, Edinburgh!
Sunday 24th June 10.30am: Service of ordination of new elder and giving our thanks to our assessor elders
Lonely? Like to make some new friends? Us too ! Make an hour in your week for God and help keep Drylaw church in the community of Drylaw; we believe you'll find it rewarding and fun. (But please don't get the impression you need to be almost some kind of saint to come to church: that's not true).
Sunday 24th June
During the service on June 24th Elizabeth Martin will be ordained as a new elder, and we will have a chance to say thank you to our assessor elders who have been worshipping and working with us for five years now.

Please see the PEP MINIBUS TO CHURCH page of this website for more details, and get in touch with the Church Office or one of the people on the OFFICE BEARERS AND CONTACT NUMBERS page if you'd like to use the transport, or know someone who would.
Anyone like to join the rota to do readings in church?
Please speak to Jill about this if you are interested. We'd very much like to have some new voices involved.
