The Old Parish Church in Corstorphine is both a beautiful building and a collection of people, who are trying to bring some more beauty to the local area.
The building dates back to 1429 and contains many historical features. It is regularly used for worship and other events and the people who gather within it's walls appreciate the calm atmosphere created by centuries of people meeting together and sharing all of lifes ups and downs together.
The people are a glorious collection of folk ranging from those who live in Corstorphine to those who live all over the world, and from those who would not self identify as religious to those for whom the Christian faith is a very important part of their lived experience and daily life.
The Old Parish Church is a Church of Scotland parish.
There are two services for worship each Sunday
The “Wee Service” for families with young children starts at 9.40am in the church hall.
The more formal service starts at 10.30am in the church.
You can also take part in an online and shortened version of a service each week.
The Old Parish Church is normally open to visitors on a Wednesday morning from 10am-12 noon.
There will be a steward on duty to help you and they are more than happy to show you round some of the history of the building. You are also very welcome to take photos, as long as they don't have people in them.
