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.

Heart and Soul 2013 – 19th May 2013

A celebration for the whole Church on Sunday 19th May!

In recognition of the 1450th anniversary of Columba landing on Iona, Heart and Soul 2013 will be inspired by Celtic Christianity, with all the richness of its themes: hospitality, pilgrimage, journeying, deep peace – healing and wholeness, creation and its care, celebrating the good earth, contemplative prayer, Trinity, representing Christ to the world, inclusive community, Christ in the stranger’s guise, rhythm of the seasons, prophecy, soul- friends, being ‘on the edge’.  And it’s exciting that Sunday 19th May also coincides with Pentecost on the church calendar!

So come along with your congregation and bring your friends to celebrate the life of the Church in Princes Street Gardens, 1- 6pm. Come and meet friends old and new, enjoy kids and youth fun, music, drama, interviews and seminars. Come and learn more about how God is at work in His Church. Come and sing for all you’re worth along with thousands of others at closing worship… do all that and begin planning now as a congregation how you‘re going to share your story with others at Heart and Soul 2013 on 19th May.

For more information call 0131 225 5722.

28/04/13 sermon – Looking at renewal rather than restoration (Revelation 21:1-6)

On Sunday 28th April 2013, in our Communion service, the Rev Dr George Whyte (Clerk of the Edinburgh Presbytery) considered Revelation 21:1-6, and how John in Revelation asks us to orientate our living, and what we do around anticipation rather than nostalgia, looking at renewal rather than restoration.

5th May 2013 – Retiral collection for Kampi Disabled Children’s Childcare Centre

A few months ago, as a Church we committed to support financially Kampi Disabled Children’s Childcare Centre in Kenya.  Kampi will be well known to many of you as it’s where Georgie from our congregation spent a long time in her career serving God and serving disabled children.

Our All Age service on Sunday 5th May 2013 will be looking at Children, and as part of that service, Georgie and one of her colleagues, Rosemary, will talk to us about Kampi.  At the end of the service we will be holding a retiral collection for Kampi Disabled Children’s Centre.

21/04/13 sermon – Being faced by the confines of life (John 10:22-30)
