The Church in Scotland
The Church of Scotland is our country’s national church and as such the ministry of South Holburn extends beyond our own membership. It is a joy to share in celebrations such as baptisms and weddings and it is a privilege to offer pastoral care in times of loss and bereavements.
Come and Worship With Us
People of all ages are welcome to come and join us for worship at 10.30am on Sunday mornings. Our Sunday School and Creche normally meet while the service is in progress.
Holy communion is celebrated on Easter Sunday and also on the last Sundays of January, June and October
