Greyfriars Kirk would not be able to offer as much as it does without the dedicated work of our volunteers. We have volunteer welcomers, who man the Kirk in our opening months, greeting visitors and providing help and information. We have volunteer stewards who assist with our concerts and welcome audiences. We have volunteer tour guides who operate our bespoke tours and give up their time and valuable knowledge of the Kirk and Kirkyard. And we have our flower ladies, who keep the Kirk looking beautiful, all through the year. 

All in all, our volunteers interact with over 200,000 visitors every year. And in order to continue to provide such a warm welcome to tourists, we are always looking to recruit more!

Volunteers need not have experience as training will be offered. If you can spare at least three hours per week, please contact us. An outline of the role of Welcomers is available here. We are also looking to recruit volunteer stewards for our arts and events. Details of the role here. Event Caterers are also required and details of the role can be found here
