Our next services will be on Sunday 3rd March where we will meet at Athelstaneford (9:30am) and Prestonkirk (11am). The theme this week will be about learning to pray.

Our next Messy Church is going to be this Sunday 3rd March, 2pm-4pm at Prestonkirk in East Linton.

Messy Church is aimed at Primary aged children and their families. The format will be similar to previous times with crafts, games, baking, bible stories and songs – and we hope that you will be able to make it along. We’ll be putting out posters and notes around the schools so please let others know who you think may be interested.

The next Messy Church after that is scheduled for Sunday 26th May at Athelstaneford Village Hall between 2pm – 4pm.


The season of Lent began on 14th February and this year our focus is on ‘Hearing God’. During Lent we are encouraging you to sign up to the Lectio 365 app, which is a daily devotional that helps you pray the Bible. You can find out more and download the app here.

Over the coming weeks, we are also running the Lectio Course – a 5 part series that will help us learn how to hear God through praying the Bible. Each session includes a short video, discussion and practical activity for us to explore together.

The course will take place at Prestonkirk Stables on Thursday evenings from 7:30pm – starting on Thursday 22nd Feb. You can find out more about the course by clicking here.
