Our Minister

Erick and Suzaan

On Sunday 13th December 2020 Rev Erick du Toit was inducted as the Parish Minister of Kirkliston Parish Church.

 


Like many other churches, Kirkliston currently has a regular virtual service of worship.  Recently ours have been primarily on the first and third Sunday of each month, with a virtual Holy Communion when possible.

Please contact kpc.officeangels@gmail.com for joining instructions.   

 


Kirkliston Parish Church is the Church of Scotland parish church in Kirkliston, and we have been worshipping here since at least the 12th century.

We are a church that believes in community as we try to make Jesus and his Gospel relevant to people today.

We meet each Sunday for two morning services:-

  • at 10.15 am we offer a traditional service of worship
  • at 11.30 am we have a more relaxed family orientated service

Coffee is served in the church centre between services which allows a time of fellowship with attendees of both services.

At significant points in the Church calendar, such as services for communion and remembrance of contributions made in conflict situations (e.g. Armistice Day), or our Annual Stated meeting (the ASM), there will be a single joint service in the Church building at 11.00 am or 10.15 am respectively.

We would like to warmly invite you to any of our services.

We also have touchpoints with other Churches in the area.  The only other Church in the village currently is Kirkliston Community Church with whom we engage, for example, to share activities at Christmas, village Galas, and local schools.


In Kirkliston there are three main Church Buildings;

The Church itself, which dates from the turn of the twelfth/thirteenth century i.e. around the year 1200AD, and still very much in regular use on Sundays and for weddings and funerals.

The Thomas Chalmers Centre which in its own day was the Free Church in Kirkliston from the time of disruption in the Church of Scotland in the 19th century from 1843 until 1929 when the reformation happened.  It is now very much the hub for social activity and fellowship for church groups as well as the wider community.
