Worship is central to the life of the Congregation.  In worship, we strive for a respect for liturgy, thought provoking preaching and a ministry of music led by our gifted Choir Director and four-part Choir.  Worship is open to all individuals and you will be made welcome at any of our services. 

Communion elements

If you are visiting Inverleith St Serf’s please note that we have a Junior Church for children aged 3 plus. We also have a newly created Creche room, adjacent to the Sanctuary for babies and toddlers (up to age of 3.)

If parents prefer to keep their children alongside them in worship, please ask for worship bags. These bags are specifically for young children who wish to remain in worship with their parents.

The Welcome Team are available to greet you and answer any questions you may have. Please introduce yourself  and sign the visitors' book. If you can tarry a while, join us for refreshments  in the Hall after worship. We provide a Fair Trade stall every two weeks.
If you are new to Edinburgh and do not have a church home in the city, we hope you will consider making Inverleith St Serf’s your place of worship and service.
