Advent is one of the most exciting times in the Christian calendar, full of mystery and a sense of anticipation. We're kicking it off with a fab bit of creative worship on Sunday 29th at 6pm in Greyfriars Kirk with the excellent Quodlibet Chorale. Everyone is welcome for amazing music and words and creative use of our beautiful building.



You will be able to buy tickets from tomorrow for our annual carol ceilidh which will be in aid of Mercy Corps.

Please contact the office for more details! We are all looking forward to an evening of catching up over mulled wine, christmas nibbles, singing some familiar carols (as well as some less familiar ones) and finally dancing along to our very own Kirk Band!

Don't miss any opportunity to get tickets to see this weekend's fabulous concert by The Sixteen!

I am pleased to say that last weekend's pet blessing service was a huge success! We had over 50 pets and plenty of owners to join in this ceremony of celebrating the bond between creatures great and small. Dogs were the majority attendees but we had some cats come along as well - including a beautiful Siamese pair who had to stay in their cage to avoid an argument with their canine friends.

Come along next year to witness another ceremony! 

Don't forget this majestic event we have on Saturday evening!

David Briggs is an internationally celebrated organist whose performances are acclaimed for their musicality, virtuosity, and ability to excite and engage audiences of all ages. We are particularly thrilled that David will be improvising in his own virtuosic fashion as part of the concert – an experience not to be missed! At the age of 17, David obtained his FRCO (Fellow of the Royal College of Organists) diploma, winning all the prizes and the Silver Medal of the Worshipful Company of Musicians. From 1981-84 he was the...
