11:00am & 6:00pm


Greyfriars Free Church belongs to the Free Church of Scotland and shares its beliefs and practices. We are committed to the doctrines of the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms. This means that we are a Calvinistic, evangelical church.

We are also a Presbyterian church, which means that we are guided and governed by elders chosen by the congregation, who serve in this way alongside the minister. We are also connected to other churches in the area and meet regularly with them as a Presbytery. Annually we have a General Assembly in Edinburgh, which representatives of our Presbytery attend.

We are a 'Free' church. The use of the word 'Free' means that we are free from state control or interference. In the early nineteenth century, State interference in the Church of Scotland resulted in ministers being imposed on congregations against their choice and against the decisions of Presbyteries. Many ministers, elders and members found this intolerable and, in 1843, formed the Free Church of Scotland.

The following details describe some of our core outlooks and details about them are found elsewhere on the website.

We are committed to holding services for the public worship of God on the Lord's Day.

We value the exposition of God's Word and have two services each Sunday and one midweek service for this purpose.

We are a church that believes in works of mercy and of showing compassion to those in need in our community and further afield.

We are a church committed to evangelism through making contact by various means with those we know who need to hear about Jesus and his saving work.

We are a congregation that takes mutual discipleship seriously and have several methods of doing this, mainly through different home and Bible Study groups.

We realise the importance of prayer for the growth of the church in Christian maturity as well as numerically and therefore have several opportunities for people to meet regularly for prayer, whether as a congregation, groups, or triplets.

We recognise the responsibility of ensuring that our children and teenagers are shown and taught the importance of the Christian Faith, and have several meetings for them, according to their age groups.
