Curious about Barclay Viewforth Church? Explore the website to learn something about the people who worship here and some of the activities we are involved in as we seek to live our lives following the example of Jesus Christ.

“Making God’s love known through Jesus Christ.”

Here at Barclay Viewforth Church of Scotland, in Edinburgh, we are an all-age Church Family who love God and want to fulfil our mission statement (above) in sharing that love with our local community and beyond, through mission and ministry.

This Advent and Christmas season we are looking at the characters in the Nativity story, and thinking about how we recognise ourselves in the individuals and situations from 2000 years ago.

On Sunday 11th December join us for Carols on the steps at 7pm, followed by hot drinks and mince pies.

At 11am on Sunday 18th it is our Nativity Service, when the focus will be on Mary’s part in the Christmas story.
Then at 6.30pm we will be looking at the Angels’ message in a Candlelit service.

On Christmas Eve, Saturday 24th, join us for a 11.30pm Watchnight Service, as we welcome in Christmas Day.  The service will look at the Shepherd’s story. Refreshments are available from 11pm.

On Christmas Day at 10.30am there is an all age Celebration – we consider Jesus, the newly born child in a manger.

Our Christmas Service card can be downloaded here.

What we do

We worship, we serve, we do a lot of eating together (and with others), and much more.

Our regular Sunday services are the 11am Morning Worship and a 6.30pm Evening Service (there is no Evening Service on 25 December or on 1 January).

If you are unable to join us on any Sunday you can usually find Sunday’s sermons on our website.
