St Martin's Parish Church
4 Magdalene Drive, Edinburgh EH15 3DB
St. Martin's Re-opening
Unfortunately due to continuing Covid-19 restrictions all of our organisations are still unable to meet and we won’t be able to enjoy our usual tea, coffee and fellowship after services but relaxations in Government and church guidelines mean we can open again for services from Wednesday 9th and Sunday 13th of September, although there are some restrictions.
Due to social distancing still being set to 2 metres, the capacity of St. Martin’s has been reduced from 100 seats to between just 20-21 depending on how many couple or family groups attend. As a result of this we are going to run each service twice in a week. The first service will be held on a Wednesday evening at 7pm and the second will be held at the usual time of 11am on a Sunday, both services will run for aproximately 30 minutes and will follow the recent pattern of online services. Services will still be posted each Sunday on Facebook and YouTube and you can watch a live stream of the service by clicking here.
As capacity is reduced so much, and in order that no one is turned away from a service, we are introducing a telephone booking system. Hazel Reid has very kindly offered to do this and will take bookings on 07818 944994 for both weekly services on Mondays between 4 & 6pm and Wednesdays between 10am & 12noon. Please note that only those who have booked a place will be able to attend the service. When you book Hazel will also make a note of your name and telephone number for test and protect purposes, these records will be kept for 3 weeks and then destroyed.
Please not that, unless exempt, you must wear a face covering while on the church premises.
We are a welcoming church in Edinburgh, using contemporary music and an informal style of worship. We are each on our own Christian journey, whether we are new to the faith or re-discovering the radical message of Jesus. We'd love to welcome you in person to one of our Sunday gatherings, or mid-week events.
We meet together in a contemporary and flexible church building, built in 2013 and recently re-floored and redecorated, on Magdalene Drive, Edinburgh. We believe that God has led us here to reach out to others in this community. And that he walks with us on our journey of faith.
