We have been around since 1878 (though clearly none of us personally for that length of time!) and are part of the Baptist Union of Scotland – a network of 170 churches throughout the country. We actively partner with many other churches and organizations within the city and beyond as we seek to honour all who serve Christ.
In a larger church like ours it’s essential for our spiritual development and equipping for service that we are engaged in meaningful relationships. So the church is made up of life group “cells” and we encourage everyone to connect into a group for encouragement, pastoral care and service.
The church is led by a Core Leadership Team of ministry staff and team members elected by the church and we have many folks committed to serving in significant ministries in the life of the church and wider community.
The church is characterized by an appetite for God’s presence in our worship and a desire to be real in our relationships with one another. We seek to be responsive both to the word of God and the Spirit of God and as a result integrate the use of spiritual gifts and inspiring contemporary preaching. We seek to be outward focused and innovative in mission both in our city and in sending people throughout the world.
