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.

Message on God’s Sign to King Ahaz- 31st December 2017


Isaiah 7:1-17

Isaiah 9:1-7


This morning’s message was delivered by our Session Clerk, John Hodge. He spoke about the story of King Ahaz in the book of Isaiah and of Ahaz’s reluctance to change his planned allegiance with the Assyrians despite the counsel of the prophet. He then discussed the human tendency to wish to stick to our own plans, using excuses such as not wishing to test God by seeking signs, and how we might remain open to God’s continuing work, approaching scripture for fresh insights and recognising that the Holy Spirit speaks through scripture in different ways from generation to generation.
