A CHURCH FAMILY AT
THE HEART OF BRIGHTONS
We seek to invite, encourage and enable people of all ages to follow Jesus Christ
Meeting with God in a personal and life-changing way.
Maturing in faith and character as God's people.
Sharing our lives and the good news of God's love in word and deed.
We’re a family of all sorts of people, journeying in community towards wholeness.
What you really need to know is that you are welcome. You are welcome to take part or just observe. If you visit with kids, they're welcome to stay with you or join our children and youth activities. You’re welcome to be part of the family of God here in Brightons because there is space for everyone: all generations, neurodiversities, abilities, approaches, backgrounds, levels of spiritual maturity, preferences, life experiences and skills.
Since 1895 and the formation of a mining village, Brightons has had a church providing a place for all to seek, find and follow God. As part of the Church of Scotland, we welcome people of all faiths and none to learn more about what it means to follow Jesus Christ. Brightons Parish Church hosts a range of groups engaging and supporting our local community at all ages and stages.
The Rev Scott Burton joined us in January 2019 after completing his training for the Church of Scotland and serving in the Highlands as a Locum Minister. Scott has a background in youth work and organisational development, and he is passionate about partnering with God to see the Church renewed and God's kingdom experienced in the Braes area.
Scott is married to Gill and they have a daughter, Hope, a son, Innes and a bouncy dog, Hector. Besides leading our congregation, Scott likes walking, climbing, drone-flying, reading, a dram and playing the guitar.
