About us

images-About-Us

Our church is made up of people from all walks of life and we love to meet new people. We really hope that you will feel right at home when you come along.

Don’t worry about getting dressed up or thinking you’ve got to get your life together before you come through the door. We're not that kind of church!

Our Sunday gatherings begin with a warm welcome and an invitation to join in celebrating the good news about Jesus Christ. We sing a mix of older hymns, contemporary songs and Psalms (the Bible's very own song book). A key part of why we meet every Sunday is to hear from God’s Word, the Bible, and to respond together to it. The service lasts for about an hour.

We have a creche for under 3s that runs for the whole of the church service. You can register your child and drop them off when you arrive.

We have a Sunday School for children from age 3 up to the end of Primary School. They leave for their class part-way through the church service.

All of our creche and Sunday School volunteers have been PVG checked to give you complete peace of mind.

We also have a nursing mums' room near our main meeting hall if you want somewhere quiet to feed or settle your child.

We finish our time together with tea, coffee, juice and cakes. It's normal find people chatting and tidying up an hour after the service ends.

Christ Church Queensferry is and led by our elders Adam McNinch, David Armstrong and Dave Hampton. We are a church plant from Charlotte Baptist Chapel, supported by The FIEC and part of The Pillar Network.

Planning your Visit

Hello!

The following information will help you plan your first visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday. Below you'll find information about our location, parking options, accessibility, the format of our meetings and what we have on for children and babies.

If we have missed anything, just let us know 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 kids with you, the Welcome Team can tell you about our crèche and Sunday School.

Parking

The building itself has no parking. There is free parking on Morison Gardens, Station Road and The BinksScotmid 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). We have a ramp set out each Sunday and someone from the Welcome Team is always standing by to assist. As you come along the corridor you'll find accessible toilets on your left. From there you'll enter the main corridor and our meeting room is only a few metres away. We have moveable seating rather than pews and we have plenty of space for wheel chairs.

If there is something we can do to improve access for you, please let us know. We want to make our church as accessible as we can because we want everyone to feel welcome.

Our Service

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 what the passage meant for the original hearers and us now, 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 old 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 old 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.

In Sunday School there is a friendly welcome, bible stories and lessons, praying, music, craft, drama and fun games. Please remember to pick your children up when the service finishes!

Children

Nursing Mums' Room
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.

You'll find baby changing facilities in the accessible toilet which is just off the main corridor.
