Welcome to the Young Church

Our Young Church has returned to the Church Hall at 10.30am on a Sunday morning - welcome back! 


Our Young Church continues to meet every week and we are now pleased to say that, from 21 November, the children will be in Church at the beginning of
worship every week. It is lovely to see them back and contributing to our services.

Thank you to all our congregation who donated gifts of toys to the Young Church's Christmas Appeal which were passed on to Barnado's, a letter has just been received from Colin Flaherty on behalf of the Edinburgh Prison Christmas Gift Collection - 

"After twenty-one years of organising the gift collection.  I am running out of superlatives to describe the difference your congregations, kindness and generosity makes to the families and children of those held within the walls of Edinburgh Prison.

The difference the gift collection makes is impossible to measure in words alone.  Please believe me when I say your kindness and generosity makes a profound difference to the lives of so many families and children.  Children that without your support, may not have had any gifts to open on Christmas morning.  That is truly how important the gift collection is.

The number of families and children that received gifts through the gift collection was 71 families and 153 children.  The small amount of that were left will be used throughout the year for birthdays and other events.

Thank you all for making the thirty sixth Edinburgh Prison Christmas gift collection a success."

Notes for parents / guardians

The Young Church Leaders are very much looking forward to welcoming all our children back to Young Church but, at present, there are still some restrictions that we need to follow:-

  • Please enter the Church via the front door, there are little seats for the children to sit on at the front.  Childlren under 12 do not need to wear a face covering.  After the children's 'talk' by the Minister/leader of worship, the children will leave by the side door, with the their leaders, to attend Young Church in Frogston Hall.
  • After the service, please continue to wear a face covering when you go to collect your child(children) from Young Church, and please adhere to social distancing guidelines.

            and

  • Please ensure you are able to collect your child / children within 10 minutes should they begin to show symptoms of Covid 19 or have an accident.  The Wee Winton room will be allocated for anyone showing symptoms to enable them to be isolated from the rest of the group
