Working with Others
We are a FAIRTRADE CHURCH
Inverleith St Serf's Church and its fairtrade stall are double award winners of the Edinburgh Lord Provost Fair Trade Awards. We won the Faith Community and Achievement Awards for 2015.
The fairtrade stall runs twice a month (11.30am, immediately after the 10.30am Church Service.) You’ll find a wide range of Traidcraft items, from everyday staples and household items to treats, cards, gifts and seasonal items. We aim to have a new product on the stall every fortnight.

CHURCH OVERSEAS PROJECT
The Congregation chooses an overseas project to support financially for a 3 year period.
From 2011-2014 the overseas project was ‘Friends of Chogoria Hospital' in Kenya.
The money raised allowed the hospital to purchase much needed equipment.
