Polwarth Parish Church in the City of Edinburgh
Learning in the Light of Knowledge, Moving in the Love of God

 

Polwarth’s Story

Polwarth is a safe place
for all people to worship
regardless of age, race, creed, cultural
background or sexual orientation
.

But we do more than worship: we provide
a community location
enhancement to the environment
a means to overcome stress and loss.

We do more than worship: we care
about people in all stages and conditions of life
about poverty and homelessness
about fairness and justice.

 
The church is in a beautiful location alongside the Union Canal near Harrison Park and has been ‘snapped’ in all weathers and all seasons - flickr photos.

We do more than worship: we grow,
learning how to live as followers of Jesus
discovering the value of faith and prayer
living a common life in community.

We do more than worship: we share
the stories of what we do
work in partnership with other agencies
making sure all are included.
