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.
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!
Pathfinders – meets fortnightly on Monday afternoons
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 Monday afternoons and at other times as the spirit guides us.
New Beginnings – meets fortnightly on Tuesday evenings
New Beginnings are encouraging others to meet in the Upper Room at the Kirkgate Centre, 6.30-7.30pm. We grew out of a recent Alpha course and meet together to pray with and for each other – as well as be constantly amazed at God’s outrageous grace to us.
Pilgrims – meets fortnightly on Tuesday evenings
Pilgrims meet on a Tuesday evening in the Mortonhall area. We are a small group, but will always welcome new members. We share each other’s “highs and lows” and pray for each other. We study the Bible and help each other to grow in our faith and understanding of what it is to be followers of Jesus. Fun and laughter are always present when we meet.
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.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Fiona Knight (email@example.com).
