About Fairmilehead Parish Church

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome! Fairmilehead Parish Church is a congregation of the Church of Scotland in Edinburgh, serving a community of over 12,000.  We have two Sunday services, one at 9.45 called Worship Now! and a more traditional Morning Service at 11am although on Christian festival Sundays and school holidays there is often one service for both congregations - 'All Together Now'.

We are a vibrant church located at the crossroads of this modern, changing world.  Comforted and challenged by the Gospel of Christ, we strive to be a welcoming and serving community. 

We connect, through the Spirit, by reaching out to our local and global neighbours in friendship and care for others; by prudent management of our resources; and by seeking both to teach and learn from those we encounter on our journey.

We believe that God's love and acceptance extends to every human being regardless of age, ethnic heritage, gender identity, marital status, national origin, physical or mental ability, race, sexual orientation or socioeconomic standing.

We encourage the full participation of all in the life of our congregation and community.  You don't need to be a church member to join in our services or activities.

The contemporary artwork in the foyer is called 'I am Come that you may have life, life in all its Fullness' by Adrian Wiszniewski.  Adrian Wiszniewski studied at the Mackintosh School of Architecture and the Glasgow School of Art and was part of the ‘New Glasgow Boys’, a group of young painters who graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in the 1980’s.  Two of his pieces of art, entitled ‘The Good Samaritan’ and ‘The House Built on Rock’, are on display in Liverpool Cathedral.

The picture was unveiled by the artist on Sunday 12 June, 2011.
