Welcome to Aberlady and Gullane! Arriving in a new town, can feel both exciting and daunting… getting to know your neighbours, finding out what is available in your new community and settling into your new home. Coming to a new church can have it’s own set of challenges, regardless of whether you have been to church before.
Here at Aberlady and Gullane Parish Church, we would love to meet you and welcome you to our beautiful villages. Our church is at the heart of the communities, with vibrant congregations, social events, children’s groups, community spaces and opportunities to build friendships with fellow parishioners.
Please let us know you are here by emailing us, and we can contact you directly to say welcome and say hello! You can also sign up to receive our Newsletters and emails direct to your inbox, and you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
Join us for worship on Sunday mornings and let one of our welcome team on the door know that you are visiting for the first time. They will be delighted to welcome you warmly and show you around. You can also join us for coffee after the Gullane service.
During the week we have our Wednesday Morning Coffee – a great opportunity to meet the friendly members of our congregation and the wider community. Or find out about our recently set up Home Groups, where members of the congregation meet in small groups to share fellowship and discussion. New members are always very welcome.
We have lots going on for young people and you can find out more on our Children, Youth and Families pages.
There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer and get involved in the day-to-day running of our church. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss helping out. Our Church Teams meet regularly and are always looking for new members – from joining the flowers or coffee rota, to our Gardening, Wednesday Coffee and Communications teams and our dedicated and hard-working Pastoral and Properties teams. There is something for everyone!
