At the heart of our identity in St.Cuthbert’s is the idea that we are active in the local community, engaging with local residents, amenities and services. Our life together as a worshipping community is sustained by sharing in different types of worship throughout the week, as demonstrated by some of the groups, Shalom, Open Forum and the Sunday School, who lead services from time to time. Communion services on Sundays and Wednesdays are central to our worship. Sunday school meets during the 10.30am Sunday service in term time. As well as the regular Sunday services, there is a midweek service on Wednesdays and an ecumenical service, particularly with the elderly in mind, on Thursday afternoons. Our outreach includes supporting a monthly service in two of the local nursing homes, regular contributions to a local food bank and weekly volunteering at the Verandah Tearoom in the Royal Edinburgh Hospital.
We are always pleased to greet visitors and to respond to anyone interested in finding out more about the life of our Church.
Whoever you are, new to the area or to our Church, on holiday, visiting friends or wishing to try something different you will be made most welcome.
If you wish, join us at any of our services and stay for coffee after the 10.30 services on Sunday and Wednesday for a chat.
If you wish to become a part of our church life there are lots of activities and groups you can get involved in.
The service sheet will guide you through worship at St.Cuthbert’s and we hope that you will feel comfortable and stand, sit or kneel as is most appropriate for you. If you would prefer to receive communion in your seat or require a gluten-free wafer, please mention this to one of the welcomers.
