Sundays at King's Church

We'd love to welcome you

As lockdown restriction have eased, we’re delighted to be gathering together again at our building.

The service will start at 10.30am, and all aspects of the meeting will be live in our building (as well as being livestreamed via our YouTube channel). We won’t be running King’s Kids activities until Sunday 22nd August, but families are still very welcome to come along to any of our services, especially the all-age celebration on 15th August!

To find out more and book your place, follow the links below:

Here are a few practical things you’ll need to know ahead of coming along:

  • The latest government guidelines require people to wear a face covering when you are in the building, unless you are exempt. Please bring one with you.
  • There will be two ways to access the building; one will be through the larger doors at the far right-hand end of the building as you look at it from Gilmore Place, and the other will be via the smaller door on the far left-hand end, which is on street level. The street-level door provides access to our internal stairlift, meaning you can get into the main hall without using stairs.
  • The building will open 15 minutes before the service begins.
  • When you arrive, someone will be there to welcome you and take a note that you’re here, for NHS Test & Protect contact tracing purposes.
  • We’re required to observe social distancing at all times while we’re in the building. Chairs will be set out the required distance and we’d encourage you not to move them unless it’s to sit with others in your household. Once you’ve chosen your seats, we’d also ask that you don’t move around between chairs before the service starts, to reduce the risk to others.
  • If after booking you find that you can no longer attend, you can cancel your sign-up and release your ticket back into the booking system via the confirmation email you received.
  • If you would benefit from reserving our one available parking space, please contact the church office in advance. Find out more about getting to our building here.

We’ve also put together some FAQs for parents and carers of young children who are considering attending an in-person service.

If you have any other questions, contact the church office.

Find us

Our building and offices are at 104 Gilmore Place, Edinburgh, EH3 9PL. This is on the junction of Viewforth and Gilmore Place. Bus routes 10 and 27 stop just outside; there are several routes that stop along nearby Fountain Park and Bruntsfield Place. We have a bike rack on our property. Parking near the building is free on Sundays, please make sure you don’t block any of our neighbours’ parking spaces!

Our building has several staircases but we have recently completed an accessibility project with a chairlift enabling access to the auditorium from our side door.

Singing

We start with a time of worshipping Jesus led by a band. We love singing and celebrating who God is, what He has done and is doing. Not being able to do this during lockdown has been so hard for us, but we’re excited and freshly grateful to be able to sing together again now.

The Bible teaches us to expect that God will speak through His Holy Spirit to various people in the congregation for the good of everyone there, so we make space for this to happen.

King’s Kids

King’s Kids will begin again from Sunday 22nd August and operate for three weeks out of every four. To check what’s happening this coming Sunday, please contact us.

Shortly after our service begins, children who are in primary school or younger go to their own activities. Parents and carers sign their children in at the start of the session and collect them at the end. King’s Kids is arranged into three groups: Mighties (1-3 years old), Supers (4 years old to school year P2), and Heroes (P3 – P7).

Parents and carers with children aged under 1 are welcome to use the foyer at the back of the auditorium, which has a TV link to the meeting, for little ones who need to make more noise or get fed.

Preaching

Every week, someone will preach to us from the Bible. We believe that the Bible is God’s perfect and timeless truth for everyone, so we want to understand what it says and apply this to our lives.

If you miss a sermon or want to listen to it again, you can download them from here or subscribe to our podcast.
