Welcome to the Parish of Traprain! We are a new union of a number of ancient parishes – Athelstaneford, Prestonkirk, Stenton and Whitekirk. Prestonkirk is in the town of East Linton, approximately twenty five miles east of Edinburgh. Athelstaneford and Whitekirk are both North of the A1 while Stenton lies to the south in the Lammermuir Hills.
We belong to the Church of Scotland. We are Presbyterian in government and Reformed in theology. Members and non-members, people of all ages and nationalities are welcome to worship with us. There is an open invitation to Christians of all denominations to celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Young people are especially welcome and there are opportunities for them to participate in our life and worship every Sunday.
Pause for Reflection
Believe it or not, there are two billion Christians in the world – and that number is increasing dramatically. Almost 700 of them belong to our congregation. What a thrilling opportunity to belong to such an inspiring movement which reveals the face of Christ to our troubled world and shares the secret of life in all its fullness. Open these windows and doors and find out some more!
