What to Expect

You are really welcome to join us, whether you are exploring faith, want to visit or are looking for a church to call home. We would love to help you get connected and introduce you to others. Our gatherings typically begin with a time of sung worship followed by a bible based talk and the opportunity to be prayed for. All the words for the songs are on a large screen. Feel free to participate as much (or as little) as you wish. Our gatherings start at 11am and finish around 12:30. Afterwards we always have tea and coffee downstairs in our café space ~ please do join us.

 

Getting Here

We are located on Portobello High Street, near the crossroads ~ easily accessible by public transport. On a Sunday there is parking on the High Street and surrounding streets. Feel free to arrive a few minutes early (we start at 11am) to get your bearings and meet some of our church family. There’s always someone at the door to welcome visitors.

 
 

 Kids

Kids’ programmes are available on Sunday mornings. Typically, the children join the adults for the start of our service and then leave to attend age appropriate sessions in adjoining rooms. Programmes are provided for children from nursery through to secondary school age. We also have a creche for any parents with younger children and there is a live feed of the service into the creche room. Safety for children is a high priority, so all our volunteers have been screened and trained to make church a safe and fun environment for your children.

 
 

Worship 

During our worship gatherings on Sundays, we sing songs, listen to teaching together and pray for one another. Our main gatherings take place in our first floor meeting space (there is wheelchair access via a lift) and typically last about 90 minutes, starting at 11am.

 
 

Community

We’re always delighted to meet new people and make you welcome. Conversation over tea and coffee after our Sunday service provides an opportunity to connect informally. The café is located on the ground floor ~ directly accessible from Portobello High Street. Glenn, our Pastor, church leaders and many of our church family are there each Sunday, so please ask anyone if you have any questions or get in touch in advance via the Contact Us button, below.
