Church Activities


These early years are an important part of getting children familiar with coming to church, spending time with other grown-ups and introducing Jesus to them in a fun environment.

Primary School

On sundays we run C4K (Carrubbers 4 Kids) which looks at many of the events of the bible, looking at what happened, why they happened and how can the bible apply to their lives.

On Friday nights, our One Way Club is open to children from the church, other churches, and the community around the church building. Songs, games and bible studys in small groups is a great way to end the week.

We also run a Scripture Union regularly at the local primary school. We’ve been blessed to have so many children attend this, who have had no previous exposure to the gospel; this is the first time they hear about sin and their need for salvation.

High School

On sundays, during our “Bible Class”, our teens spend time diving deeper into scripture. Each week varies; sometimes its reading and un-packing various passages, sometimes explore some of the challenges of teenage life and pressures put on them, and discuss what the biblle and God says about various topics of life, and sometimes a member of our church family will share their testimony and be “grilled by the teens” with questions about their life and how God has helped them.

Every other saturday our Exodus ministry offers a more social time together, which encourages the teenagers to bring friends along, develop friendships, support and encourage each other and know they are not alone in their journey as a christian.

Several of our teens volunteer as helpers in the primary One Way Club. The older teens also serve at regular intervals in our sunday ministries in many different ways. This gives them a great sense of serving the Lord with the skills and gifts He has given them.


With multiple universities in Edinburgh, having a city centre church is a great opporunity to support students as they move away from home and step into the wide world.

We have many students in our membership who become part of our church family.

Our Logos ministry is open to them and students who are part of other churches. It meets after our morning service and offers a free lunch and further bible study.

We find our students often come having grown up in church, but are now just really discovering what it menas to have their own faith.

We have been blessed for decades to be able to input into their lives, deepen their faith, teach them how to open and study the bible together.

At the end of their study, some will move away to other places around world, but they go with a solid faith into other churches. Some do also stay around and many of our children have parents who met as students.

We have a pastor in training who focuses on the students

Sunday Services

Our Sunday services are a chance for us to come together as a wider family. During the services we worship God with singing, we pray to Him, and most importantly we open the bible to understand more of what God wants to say to us.

Our preaching style is to simply open each book of the bible and work thorugh all the chapters and passages of that book. It often takes many years to progress thorugh a book; such is the richness of the text. We find application to our lives that challenge and encourage us.

We regularly take communion together. This is a time for us to remember our sinful nature, the body and blood of Jesus Christ that was broken and shed for us; wiping our sins away so we shall have eternal life in Heaven.



Our homegroups meet around the city every 2 weeks. In this smaller environment we invest in each others lives; praying, enouraging, supporting, rejoicing, consoling for and with each other.

Prayer Meeting

Prayer is such an important part of Carrubbers and in addition to other times of the week, once a month we join together for corporate prayer; lifting our church, city, country and the world up before God.

Bible Study

Our Women 2 Women, and Men 4 Christ minsitries create another opportunity for us to open God’s word. As separate meetings, we gather as men and women to be challenged in our sinful lives to walk more closely with the Lord.

Local and World Missions

We have been blessed to send so many missionaries around the world over the years and currently pray for, and financially support missionaries in Edinburgh itself, around the UK, and in South America, Europe, Africa and Asia.

It has been a joy to hear so many stories of individuals, families and entire tribes coming to faith through God’s work using these willing servants.
