“A Church at the Heart of the Community”

Welcome to Bonnyrigg Parish Church

We are a Church of Scotland congregation based in the centre of Bonnyrigg. Our aim as a congregation is to provide a warm welcome to all who join us. To offer an inclusive, open and affirming ministry, to demonstrate a strong concern for social issues, both in our local community and further afield. We aim to work positively with other church and fait communities. We strive to be a friendly and welcoming church for all.

We would love to welcome you as part of the family of Bonnyrigg Parish Church, remember you do not have to be a member to come along to any of our activities or services of worship. If you want to know more about church membership then please contact the minister who will be only to happy to help!



Greetings from the manse,

I have been reading a book this week called "hybrid church", it's about the challenge for churches to cater for both those in attendance and those attending digitally. We continue to learn on the job but we are excited by the opportunity to make church as accessible as we can for everyone. 
 
We finish our series on prayer with a call to thankfulness as we approach what will be a very unusual Advent season, keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for more information on how Christmas services. 
 
Our prayer as always is that you know the enduring love of God surrounding you and the hope and comfort we find in faith. 
 
Other notices: 
 
Sunday Worship: We continue to be uplifted by the response from the congregation, there is space for more to attend each week. Please don’t hold back asking to attend, if we do have more than we can accommodate we will move whoever is unsuccessful to the top of the list for the following week.  Remember if you wish to attend Sunday Worship next week please call the office number 0131 654 0140 between Monday and Wednesday and leave your name, a contact number and how many from your household wish to attend. If you DO NOT hear from us then you are good to attend, we will only call if you’ve been unsuccessful. 
 
Private Prayer: The church will continue to be open for private prayer each Thursday, between 10 and 12. Even if you do not feel ready to return to Sunday Worship you may find comfort in some quiet time within the Church.
 
Christmas Card Labels: A reminder that Keith Leslie is offering to do this year’s Christmas card labels, uplift and delivery of listings or labels will be from Keith's house at 15 Maryfield Place. New customers are welcome just pass on your list of addresses. This facility is available to anyone, not just church members, but time is running put for this. Any queries Keith can be contacted on 07549 024624. 
 
Here are the links for this Sunday Service and we pray that God will speak to as we digitally unite in worship.
