Welcome to the website of Priestfield Church! Explore it to find out more about us, events we are running and recent teaching. You can also find us on Facebook at ‘Priestfield Church’.  

Priestfield is part of the Church of Scotland standing in the Reformed Tradition. But we are glad to share with people of other traditions and, whoever you are, you will receive a warm welcome. So where are you? Come and join us!

Our building faces on to Dalkeith Road just a few metres down from the Commonwealth Pool and Pollock Halls of Residence, and there are many students among the 6000 or so people who live in our Parish.

Priestfield Parish Church

While we are not a large congregation, we are trying to find ways in which we can serve the community around us. There’s lots to do and we can always use extra people to help us.

At the moment we have one service at 10.30am on Sunday mornings, with the first part being our all-age Godspace slot. In the second part of the service we have a reflection chiefly for adults, usually including a visual presentation.

If you have enjoyed ‘Try Praying’ over recent weeks then why not explore ‘Try Following Jesus’ on Thursdays in May at 2pm in the Lounge. It is a time to ask questions or have a chat about praying, following Jesus or anything else.
In June and July on Sunday at 10.30 Jared will be staring a journey of Following Jesus during the morning worship.

What are we about? The Kirk Session approved a document called Patterns of Shared Commitment which is designed to be a help for us as we journey together with Jesus. If you are searching for a way of life, have a look at it and try some of them out for yourself.

For more about our congregation and copies of our magazines, use the ‘news’ tab. The latest edition of our Church magazine, The Net, can be found here and our Eco-Congregation newsletter EnvironmNet can be found here.

Happy exploring – we hope that you will find something’s of interest on our pages. More importantly, if you’re looking for us you’re probably also looking for God – I’m sure you will be found!

Blessings on you.
