Kirkliston Parish Church is the parish church of 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.
As of 2018 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.
