Our family church gives us great opportunities to be church in a new and different way.  We seek to be an open and inclusive church, so that means whatever your creed, colour, social background or sexuality, you will be welcome here.  Our aim is to embrace and embody the values that Jesus stood for.

 

St Martin's is a home for pilgrims: a seeker, a searcher, an explorer.  How do we say YES! to life; how do we live life in all its fullness?   We believe that through the radical message of Jesus, there is great wisdom to be found;  there are life-changing pointers to discover along the way.   Why make this journey on our own when we can do it with the support, the help and the encouragement of friends and family.  So if you have a pilgrim heart, come join us at St Martin's. So we can go on this amazing journey together.   

 

St Martin's is a home for prodigals; over the years many people have drifted away from the church and the faith.  Some have in the past  had a bad experience of bad religion. They have been hurt, disappointed; they are part of the walking wounded.  And yet still, there is often a need to belong.  A need to find a spiritual home. If this could be you, be assured that a warm welcome awaits you at St Martin's.

 

In our church, every person is valued, every opinion respected.  And every person has an important part to play in our church family.  So whether you are a pilgrim or a prodigal, come check us out.

 

Worship

 

Worship and Fellowship. Sundays 11am - 12 noon.  

 

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 new church building 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.  

Children's Church

 

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to St Martin's.  Our big team of children's workers provide a safe, fun and lively environment for children and young people every Sunday from 10.45am.  

 

Our morning starts with a brilliant 'Sharing Together' slot, led by our minister.  Then the children and youngsters move on to their own zone, where they enjoy making new friends, exploring bible stories, creating crafts and joining in the fun, games and activities.  We all learn more about Jesus and a God who loves and values each and every one of us.  

 

Team Leader, Nell says "Come join us any Sunday at 10.45am.  You and your family will be made really welcome."
