Children’s Church

All children are invited to join us for Children’s Church, which runs during term times in the 10:45am Sunday services. Two PVG cleared adults take the children down to the hall to play games and enjoy craft activities together, while the adults enjoy the sermon. Depending on individual family wishes, the children can be brought back into the church to partake of communion with their parents. If you have any questions, email Kristee:

International students and young adults

Young adults and university students are warmly welcomed to attend our services, as well as our monthly social International Student Cafe. During term times, we run a range of activities, including meals out, bowling, cinema trips, walks and mini golf. It’s always a lot of fun, and a great place for new connections and friendships. Please email Kristee if you would like more information:

Plus other ad hoc activities: country walks, quiz nights etc.  See our Children and Families Facebook page for updates

Children and Music

Older children (8-16) are welcome to join the St Peter’s Choir. Run by Rupert Forbes and Sheila Chisholm,  junior choristers rehearse together on Thursday evenings during term time 6 – 7 pm. We cover sacred music from the Rennaissance to the present day.

Sheila also teaches the Royal School of Church Music Voice for Life syllabus.  VfL helps singers develop with vocal exercises, posture, breathing and diction; listening skills, music theory and notation.

Children sing alongside the adult choir on Sunday mornings 10 am – 12 pm at least two Sundays a month (more often if you like).  Junior choristers join the younger children at Children’s Church for part of the morning.  We then rejoin the adults for communion and the last anthems and hymns.

St Peter’s junior choir has taught my son to read music and sight sing.  It taught him the musical theory that his otherwise wonderful violin teacher didn’t cover.  A first rate musical education.”  Liz, mum of a chorister.

If you’d like to know more about what is involved contact Rupert via the office, email or phone number 0131 563 8198.
