                            WELCOME

iconsWe welcome those who were born in Penicuik, have
lived here for 80 years but are still incomers, the newly
arrived and those just passing through. We welcome you
with a deep Scots  brogue, English twang or a more exotic
accent. We welcome you even when you call us the English
church and say we are on English Lane, although this
church is Scottish through and through.

iconsWe extend a special welcome to all who are single,
married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, or dirtpoor.                                                                       
We extend a special welcome to those who are crying
new-borns, skinny as a rake or could afford to
lose a few pounds.

 

iconsWe welcome you if you can sing like Pavarotti or
if you believe that you can’t carry a note in a bucket.
You’re welcome here if you’re just browsing, just woke
up or just got out of prison. We don’t care if you’re more
Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury, or haven’t
been in church since little Jimmy’s christening.

We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60
iconsbut not grown up yet and to teenagers who are growing
up too fast. We welcome keep-fit mums, football dads,
starving artists, tree-huggers, latte sippers, vegetarians,
junk-food eaters. We welcome you if you are having problems
or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like organised religion – we’ve been there too.

PASTORAL CARE

We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, and those who wonder about chaos theory, multiverses and much much more. We welcome all who work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or are here because your grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.

A special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now,
had religion shoved down their throat as a kid or got lost and
wound up here by mistake. We welcome visitors, seekers and
iconsdoubters, bleeding hearts………. and you!
