Visiting? Get to know us

Everyone is warmly welcome to our Sunday services. We recognise the importance of getting to know each other and do this both during the ‘welcome’ and after services over tea and coffee.

Hello – my name is Norman Smith and I am Minister of the Church of Scotland Parish here in Granton Edinburgh, welcome to our website.

At our Church you will find people of all ages and from all walks of life who have found through faith in Jesus Christ a different way to live. Week by week we seek to meet with each other and share life’s journey together. What God has to say through the Bible is the main focus of our worship.

Through its message, applied relevantly to contemporary life, we come to know God.

We offer a place for making friends and meeting new people where the whole family are welcome; a place of community and fellowship. We don’t believe faith is for Sundays only, but that it impacts all parts of our lives. We also believe faith is for everyone, regardless of age and as such we offer a wide range of activities where people can meet socially.

The Sunday Service

Our worship style could be described as ‘informal contemporary’, with elements of ‘traditional’ thrown in for good measure.

We're Getting Greener

We care about God’s world – and we are currently running a project, funded by the Scottish Government Climate Challenge Fund.

Children & Families

At Granton we believe that children are valued individuals, and that families are a central part of the church and the community. 

Life Events

The Church of Scotland plays an essential role in providing worship and spiritual guidance for key life events – baptisms, weddings and funerals.

Blue Skies

We are well under way with our development project – aimed at improving the church buildings for use as a community hub.

We’re a bunch of ordinary people who want to know God and live our lives for him. At our church we aim to introduce people to Jesus so that they will:

  • Know God intimately

  • Follow God passionately

  • Share God relevantly

To achieve this we try to live up to these values:

  • Equality is based on who you are not on what you have

  • Everyone is valued and everyone has gifts that can be offered to God

  • True community brings with it respect across the generations and cultures

  • Everything we do is rooted in Jesus Christ

Go ahead and browse through our website to learn more about us. If you want to join us please come along on Sunday morning and introduce yourself, we would love to meet you and hear your story. Feel free to ask any questions and get in touch, we will do our best to answer your queries.

Lastly we wish you every blessing that God can bestow and hope you find your life made richer through faith in Jesus Christ, as we have.

God Bless you!
