What we believe

We were all created by a loving God, who wants to have a good relationship with us. As Christians we believe that the best way to enjoy this is through faith in Jesus, God’s Son. 

That’s why our main activity is the weekly service of worship - on Sundays at 10:30am. It’s open to everyone and we invite you to come and join us.
We don’t pretend to be better than anyone else, but we are keen to share what we have discovered.

Our history  
S
lateford Longstone Church is a parish church, part of the Church of Scotland (A Reformed Presbyterian denomination). Our roots go back to 1782 when we were in the old village of Slateford.  We have been in the present building since 1955.

We work in partnership in a number of projects with other local congregations, including the Church of Scotland ones - St David’s Broomhouse, St Nicholas’ Sighthill and Stenhouse St Aidan’s. 

Our Activities
In addition to worship on Sunday mornings, there are various evening services and events. On the first of the month there is New Month - New Worship, with St David' Broomhouse - a creative and informal approach to worship. There is now also our own Prayer Service on the third Sunday of  most months.  And there's a network of Cluster  Groups, which discuss and apply the Sunday morning and other themes in more depth.

During the week there are a number of adult activities - a branch of the Church of Scotland Guild, an Over 50s Group, and a Food and Faith Cluster Group for men
