We are committed to prayer and there are a number of opportunities for us to get involved:

  • Prayer Base: on the first Sunday of each month we meet at 6:30 pm to pray for an hour, for the church, the world and ourselves. Usually we gather in the chancel at church but during the Covid emergency we meet online via Zoom. Joining details available from our church office or Rector. 
  • Midweek prayers: at the moment we are offering midday and night prayer online, usually via all our media channels - FacebookYouTube and Periscope. See What's On and the Church Calendar for details.  
  • Starting from 28th September, we will not be open on fixed days for private prayer. Instead, if you would like to visit, please contact Jane or Rosemary in the office and they will arrange a suitable time for you to do so on a weekday morning. Click here for further details.
  • Prayer support for individuals: When we meet in person on a Sunday, this is offered towards the end of services, at the front of the church. Members of the Prayer Ministry Team will be pleased to pray with you for needs, or in giving thanks.
  • Homegroups: at present some of our homegroups are meeting online or otherwise remotely supporting members. This includes times of prayer for individuals, as well as people and situations outside of the group content.
  • Monthly Thursday evening teaching sessions: we usually meet in the hall around the third week of the month but are currently meeting online on an occasional basis. As well as having the opportunity to explore a topical or other theme from a biblical perspective, we take time to pray together.
  • The World Day of Prayer: members of St Thomas' are involved in this annual event.

If you have a pastoral need during the Covid emergency, please make us aware and we will try to assist you.

Planning your Visit

New to church? 

Welcome! Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life - we hope the website helps you find out what you want to know about St Thomas' Church.

We currently are meeting in person. It's not essential to book but it helps us if you can as we are required by government Covid regulations to keep records for track and trace purposes. Please book with the church office by Thursday morning - our phone number is: 0131 285 8782. We are also providing worship services and other activities online online through YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. 

Further details are available within the Church Life area of our website, which includes information about children's and youth activities and resources. Other activities are described within the Community section.
