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.

If you’d like to get in touch by phone or e-mail please follow the link to our find us and contacts page.

Newhaven Running Club

Newhaven Running Club is a group of like minded people of varying ages and capabilities, who join together most Sundays after worship.
This is an organic group that has grown from a few members chatting during coffee after church about a shared interest, and is open to anyone who has an interest in running and/or exercise.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to attend. Participation is optional, come along to watch, be our timekeeper or show us how it’s done…..
We meet in the church garden (after coffee) for a couple of warm up exercises then those who wish can go for a wee run around the parish.
Please note this is an informal group with no qualified teacher but we all share our ideas and experience.
Mostly it’s a great opportunity to get a little fitter or stronger whilst getting to know each other better and of course having fun together!

Hope to see you soon.
