Helping you?

Practical help
We want to offer you practical assistance if you need it. Perhaps you need a lift to hospital, or help as a carer or parent, or you or someone you know is looking for a friendly face or a listening ear. Please phone Christine Thomson for help or for information on 0131 667 5145.

Spiritual care
Life can be tough. If you have a life issue you want to bring to God, or you want to know God more in your life, we offer prayer and help from the Bible. We believe that, because of Jesus, you can pray to God yourself (please look at www.trypraying.org) but it can help to have someone help you with this. Please get in touch with John Urquhart, our minister.

Prayer for wholeness, peace and well-being
This is a Christian service in which trained volunteers will pray quietly with you if you are sick, anxious or troubled. We can’t promise you a particular answer to prayer, but we do trust in God’s love, wisdom and power. If you want to know more, please ask John Urquhart, our minister.

Baptism
If you are thinking of baptism for yourself or a younger member of your family, please get in touch with John Urquhart, our minister. He will invite you to attend an Alpha course which will help you decide whether you want to commit yourself or your family to be followers of Jesus in the Christian church. (If you have already been baptized, you may want to join our local church. Please ask how to do this.)

Weddings
A church wedding is an opportunity to involve God in your lives as you make your promises to each other and ask God’s blessing on your marriage. If you would like to be married in church, please contact John Urquhart, our minister, who will send you a wedding pack and arrange to meet you.

Funerals
A funeral director will arrange this with us, if you or the deceased person are from our parish or have links with us. Age Scotland’s factsheet, Planning for a funeral, is available from 0845 125 9732 or at: www.agescotland.org.uk

Hall Lets
It is sometimes possible to hire part of our premises for suitable activities. Please contact Norman Weibye on 0131 668 3545.
