Welcome!to St Peter's Lutton Place
Christian communityon the south side of Edinburgh
Historic building & hallsopen to all
join us in worship
We warmly welcome all to our services in church! They are held on Sundays at 9am & 10.45am, and at 11am on the first Thursday of the month.
After the 10.45am Sunday morning service all are welcome to share in fellowship over tea and coffee. Weather permitting, this is served outside, but if the weather is bad it is in the hall.
The Liturgies we use for our services are,
9am Sunday Services, and at 11am on the first Thursday of the month. A service of Holy Communion using a shortened Liturgy from The Scottish Prayer Book. These services use traditional language, and have no music or sermon.
10.45am Sunday service. A service of Holy Communion using a shortened 1982 Liturgy. This uses modern language, with choir and some congregational singing.
Following Government regulations the wearing of face masks is still required, and that all who attend have signed the Track and Trace consent form. Forms are available at the door. Wishing to ensure everyone continues to feel safe, we also ask that the congregation keep socially distanced and continue to follow the one-way system around the church. During the Sunday 10.45am service, the choir are singing again, and the congregation now also greatly enjoy singing three congregational hymns, and the Sanctus and Benedictus from James MacMillan’s St Anne Mass.
Sunday 28th November: Advent Sunday, 5pm
At 5pm, we have out annual Tree Lighting Ceremony to light the Christmas Tree in our garden.
Beginning with singing some Carols in the garden, we will then move into the hall to continue singing more Carols while enjoying mince pies and mulled wine. There will also be fun activities for the children!
Proceeds will go to this year’s Christmas Charity, The Woodland Trust, ‘Couldoran Appeal’.
All are very welcome!
