The church has been involved in ministry through football since 2007. The church team, Barclay Viewforth United, used to be involved in the East of Scotland Churches League (ESCFA) but broke away, along with some other teams to set up the Edinburgh Churches Football League. The launch of the new league was formalised at a special commissioning service at Barclay Viewforth in October 2013.
The team is made up of Christians and non Christians and the best way of getting involved either in playing or some other capacity is through attending the team’s training and practice sessions held on the Meadows during April to October – there is normally a break during the close season and training moves to a floodlit venue during the late Autumn and winter. Matches take place on Saturday mornings on public park football pitches and would-be players and supporters are always very welcome.
