 Moderator’s Visit

This coming Sunday, 22nd October, we look forward to welcoming The Rt Revd Dr Derek Browning, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland as our guest preacher at our 11.15am service of Parish Worship.   Minister of Morningside Parish Church, Derek had links with Canongate Kirk during the previous vacancy but this time we will be glad to welcome him not only to the pulpit but to the Moderator’s seat in the chancel.  All welcome.

Harvest Thanksgiving 

Our Harvest Thanksgiving took place at both services on Sunday 8th October.  Many thanks to the congregation who brought donations of non-perishable foodstuffs and toiletries pictured here. These will be delivered to Streetwork, a local charity for the homeless.   Cash donations will support Canongate Kirk’s commitment to feeding the homeless in the coming winter months.  Thanks to all who contributed!
