Lonely? Like to make some new friends? Us too Laughing! 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).
