We want to bless Edinburgh, here are the some of the ways you can get involved with this:
Basics Bank. On the first Sunday of every month we collect food and toiletries for local people in need, which are distributed by the Bruntsfield Basics Bank. If you'd like to donate, please bring any of the items listed here and give it to the collection team in the foyer before the service starts. Contact Kiri Lo & Heather Peterson.
King's Tots. Our Tots team create a weekly place for local mums and dads to find friendship, support, and entertainment for their toddlers. Until March 2019, we have building work happening which will sadly prevent King's Tots from meeting. But usually, Tots runs every Wednesday morning in term time, 10am to 11.30am. We love volunteers who are either friendly, able to make drinks, or both! Contact Helen Harris.
Alpha. Our Alpha team run courses regularly to help introduce people to Jesus and the basics of the Christian faith. You can find out more about the course on our Alpha page. If you can cook, be a friendly welcomer, help lead a discussions group, or work the technology, the team would love to hear from you. Contact Ali and Lydia Simpson.
Elderly Befriending. Visiting local elderly people in their homes and in nearby sheltered housing to give support and friendship. Contact Maria Sigston.
Evergreen Cafe. A monthly event at King's Church for the elderly in our community, run by our elderly befriending team. Contact Maria Sigston.
Go Team. The Go Team go onto the streets of Edinburgh every Saturday to share the good news with people they meet. Join them at the church building at 10am to pray together before setting out on an adventure with God. Contact Guy Pembroke.
Ten8. An annual event for students to serve our city, including street outreach, elderly visits, youth work, and practical help in the community. Contact Facebook page or our student worker Nathanael Smith.
Hub104. Our new Youthwork venue, opening on Fridays from 1pm for local young people to get together, play games, food, wifi, xbox gaming, chatting and connect with our team of youthwork volunteers. Visit the Hub104 website for more information or contact Gemma Morton.
Safe Families for Children. We are partnering with Safe Families for Children, Scotland, to help share God’s love with vulnerable families in our community. There are many ways to get involved, from giving resources to welcoming children into your home. Contact Karis Cookman.
