Welcoming through our doors

Free English Classes

These are offered at various points throughout the year. The 1hr 15-minute classes are well attended, Directed conversation classes are offered at basic, intermediate and advanced levels. The sessions provide friendship and language skills and help equip students to engage with British culture, find jobs, chat with neighbours and, for many, it is an introduction to coming to our worship services at Carrubbers.

There is Hope

There is Hope runs during the Edinburgh International Festival in August as Carrubbers is transformed into a live music cafe where the gospel is shared in a direct, yet informal way. Different artists are invited to share their songs, journeys and testimonies and to join us in bringing the hope we have in Jesus to the city of Edinburgh and beyond. Each year around 3,000 people come through our door in just one week.

Christianity Explored

Christianity Explored is for anyone who would like to investigate the claims of Christianity, all are very welcome. The course lasts for seven weeks and is designed to be relaxed, informative and helpful. Each week there is a presentation on one key element of the Christian message, and plenty of time for discussion and questions. You’re not asked to pray, sing, or read aloud, and you can ask any question you like. Or, if you prefer, you can come along and simply listen.
