Weekly Groups

Thrive – meets weekly on Wednesday evenings

Thrive is a weekly house group with worship, sharing, discussion and prayer; all with the intention of growing in our faith.  Current ‘thrivers’ have a wide age range and welcome new people.

Beta Pilgrims – meets weekly on Thursday evenings

Beta Pilgrims meet on a Thursday evening in the Mortonhall area. We came together from an Alpha group and now meet together to share, learn and pray with each other –  as well as laugh and eat! There is always room for new members.

Friday Fellowship – meets weekly on Friday mornings

We meet in the McDonald Room in the Kirk Centre and try to improve our knowledge of the Bible by reading our way slowly through a chosen book and discussing what it means. We believe it’s important to get to know each other better and to support one another, and we pray together, and of course have a cup of coffee. There are usually some laughs along the way!

Fortnightly Groups

Pathfinders – meets fortnightly on Tuesdays evenings

We are a group of mixed ages and interests, who are keen to deepen our faith and our understanding of scripture through Bible reading, commentaries and inspiring books. We believe that as a group we should be triangular, looking always upwards to God, inwards in terms of fellowship and support and outward in give service where possible. We meet fortnightly on Tuesday evenings and at other times as the spirit guides us.

New Beginnings – meets fortnightly on Tuesday evenings

New Beginnings meet on a Tuesday evening at the foot of the Brae. We grew out of the most recent Alpha course and now meet together to learn more about our Christian faith and pray with each other – as well as be constantly amazed at God’s outrageous grace to us. We have already added new members – and more are always welcome!

Home & Away – meets fortnightly on Thursday evenings

People in this group are involved in different areas of service, ministry and mission outwith the group, so when we come together, it is a place to receive care, encouragement and prayer for these areas, along with growing together in our faith through bible study and fellowship, and having fun together. Hence the name – “Home (to care) and Away (to share)”.

The Cornerstone Group – meets fortnightly on Thursday evenings at 8pm

We are a friendly group, learning and praying together. Our aim is, through Bible study and thought-provoking discussion, to make Jesus the cornerstone of our lives. We all enjoy our fellowship and would welcome others joining us as we share our faith journey. (p.s. two cats in residence).

Vista Group – meets fortnightly on Thursday evenings

We are a group of mixed ages. Our usual meeting place provides a wide vista of the city of Edinburgh and the sky above, symbolic of our desire to find a fresh view of God and the people around us. Our meetings centre around Bible study, in which we do not shy away from open discussions of challenging issues that come our way. Fellowship and sharing our experiences is an important part of our group life.

Monthly Group

The Book group – meets monthly on the 4th Tuesday evening

A non-intimidating support group for bewildered would-be Bible readers.  We read a Bible book each month (with occasional extensions to two months, for some of the bigger books), then get together to talk about what we’ve read.  Each meeting ends with an introduction to the next book.  The goal is to cover the whole Bible in around 7 years, but people are welcome to start in or drop out at any point along the journey.

If you want to join one of these groups – where we meet together to grow upwardly, inwardly and outwardly – or just want more information, contact Rink van Dijke (rink@talktalk.net)  or Fiona Knight (peterandfiona@blueyonder.co.uk).
