Christmas Blessings

On behalf of everyone at Granton Parish Church we wish you every blessing this Christmas. For us as Christians this time of year is a reminder that God cared enough for this world to allow his son Jesus to enter it; amazingly as a vulnerable little child! He did that because he loves this world. So whoever you are and whatever circumstances you find yourself in; know this Christmas that you are loved! Norman Smith

Helping Bethany at Christmas

There will be an opportunity to donate money to our Bethany Shelter fund after the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services. As a congregation we provide a wholesome, home cooked meal for around 60-70 homeless people during the winter months, as part of our involvement in the Bethany Winter Shelter programme. We are looking to raise enough funds to pay for two such meals during the remainder of the winter - our target is £400. Edinburgh’s Homeless Young People - a poem
