Easter…. that’s chocolate eggs, cute bunnies and roast lamb, right?
Sort of, and a lot more. There’s a story that’s been retold for thousands of years. A story about new life, full life, abundant life. It’s a story about Jesus……
There will be lots of fun and activities, including lots of crafts, egg rolling, a treasure hunt, a prayer garden, an empty tomb, baby activities, a lego challenge and a Labyrinth.
Come and join us at Brightons Parish Church on Saturday 25th March. Drop in any time from 11am-4pm, there’s no cost. We hope to see you there.

Come and join us at our Nativity Fun Day, which takes place on Saturday 3rd December, between 9:30 and 12:30.

A special event for under-5s and their families, to help your wee one get into the Christmas spirit, with lots of things to make, explore and touch. Drop in any time for craft, dressing up, singing and stories. There is a new interactive baby room, a puppet theatre, Nativity sets to play with, and lots of cake and juice (and tea for the grown ups of course). Older kids are very welcome to come and join in with everything, and try our treasure hunt too. We hope to see you there!

There is no cost and no need to register, but it would help our planning if you could like our Facebook event:

Maintenance Work – Update

Maintenance Work - Update

Further update on the work to renew the flat roof and associated works on the Heriot Hall and on the hall vestibule and the kitchen flat roofs:

Unfortunately, due to further periodic inclement weather, these works will continue into this week. The current car parking restrictions will remain in force during the day again this week. There will be no restrictions in force in the evenings except that the disabled spaces will remain closed until the works are complete and the scaffolding dismantled.
