A very warm welcome to Newhaven Church

Newhaven Church is a congregation of the Church of Scotland based in Newhaven, Edinburgh.  We are a caring group of Christians committed to serving Christ, each other and the community.

We’re an active church, not restricted by the walls of our building, and hold a number of events both within the church, around the parish area, and further afield. We hold church services every Sunday at 10.30am, and have Communion Services on the last Sunday of each month. We hold family friendly All Age Services on the first Sunday of each month. You will find a warm greeting at any of these services, where we would be delighted to have you visit us.
