We are a small, friendly congregation of mixed ages but weighted towards the 50 to 90+ range.
We have Guiding units (Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Rangers) led by members of the congregation. The girls and their families join us in youth and other appropriate services at different times of the year. Especially on Remembrance Sunday, the Scouting groups in the community also join us.
We have good links with Trinity Primary school who normally gather together with friends and family for their Christmas and Easter Assemblies in our church; the only times of the year when the church is packed, upstairs as well as downstairs!
We normally have tea, coffee and biscuits in the hall after morning worship – a chance for a blether with friends and visitors. There is also a small prayer group which meets in a comfy room in the hall before the morning service.
On Communion Sundays, the last Sundays in October, January, April and June, the congregation join together for a lunch after the service.
Other social events such as coffee mornings, afternoon teas, take place from time to time, usually on Saturdays. The Guiding units normally hold a Beetle Drive for family and friends in the autumn / winter. We also get together with friends from the other One Church for Leith congregations for concerts, Burns Nights etc.
As well as the youth organisations, members support the local community through working with charities such as the North East Edinburgh Food-Bank, run in partnership with the Trussell Trust, Bethany Christian Trust working with the homeless, Fresh Start which helps homeless people with moving into a home of their own.
We also have links with people working in overseas areas: a missionary partner in Jerusalem, a charity helping to provide food and support for school children in Kenya, and a charity working in a poor mountain area in Ecuador. We normally support a particular chosen charity each year through our Christmas Appeal.
