The following information will help you plan your first visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday. If we have missed anything, just let us known by using the form at the bottom of this page.
Where and When
We meet at Rosebery Hall, 17 West Terrace, South Queensferry, EH30 9LL for our Sunday Service which starts at 2:30pm.
For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you find somewhere to park and find somewhere to sit before the service begins.
When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team who will be wearing a Welcome lanyard. If you have got kids, the Welcome Team can tell you about our crèche and Sunday School.
Plan your journey:
Open Google Maps
The building itself has no parking. There is free parking on Morison Gardens, Station Road and The Binks. Scotmid also has free parking but only for 2 hours so be careful to avoid a ticket!
Accessibility: There is wheelchair access to the rear of the building (accessed via the flats at the bottom of The Loan). There is a ramp set out each Sunday and we have someone from the Welcome Team standing there too. There are disabled toilets in the main foyer.
The service begins at 2:30pm with a warm welcome from the person leading the service. The service includes different aspects: songs (led by our musicians), prayers, Bible readings, as well as news and notices being shared.
One of our leaders will then give a talk based on a passage from the Bible. The talk will help us understand the passage, how it points to Jesus Christ, and how it applies to our everyday life. We then finish with a final song.
At least once a month we also take the Lord's Supper together. This is offered to all members who are in good standing with their church family and who aren't living in unrepentant sin. Visitors who belong to other gospel-preaching churches where they are in good standing, not living in unrepentant sin and where they'd normally take the Lord's Supper, are also welcome to participate. Everyone else is welcome to observe what is happening.
At the end of the service there is always someone around to talk with you about what you have heard or about anything else that you want to talk about!
What about my kids?
We have a great programme lined up for kids:
Crèche (0 months to 3 years).
Sunday School (3 years to the end of Primary 7).
Children under 3 years can be dropped off at crèche before the service begins. In crèche the children get a snack. Please let the crèche leader know if your child has any dietary requirements and please make sure you pack a water bottle for them to use during this time.
Children over 3 years stay with their parent or grown-up for the first part of the service. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. Part way through the service someone will announce that it’s time for Sunday School. If it is your first Sunday you will need to go with your children to register them as part of our child safety policy. Even if you come regularly you still need to take the children to Sunday School to sign them in.
Nursing Mums' Room
In Sunday School there is a friendly welcome, bible stories and lessons, praying, music, craft, drama and fun games. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.
If you would like somewhere discreet to feed your little one or you just need to settle them, we have a room specifically set aside for this near our main meeting hall. Just ask one of Welcome Team to show you the way.
