Baptisms/Christenings
Weddings
Funerals

A ministry for you

In the Scottish Episcopal Church we believe in marking the significant moments in life well. Baptisms can take place for people of any age 0-110! and mark the beginning of the Christian pilgrimage on earth and your formal entry into the life of the worldwide Church. Our Wedding Services are very flexible and allow for the selection of the readings and prayer that suit your circumstances best whether a young couple marrying for the first time or for a couple coming to Scotland to marry in church having not been able to in another country. With the selection of traditional rituals available you can make your celebration one that works for you and your life now. As our loved ones die and we wish to mark their passing as unique individuals, the SEC Funeral Services provide the perfect framework for saying goodbye and remembering with dignity and joy lives which were shared with us. If you would like to discuss any of these ministries please contact the Rector who will be pleased to help you create a dignified and profound event suited to you.
Love Lives again - The Stations of the Resurrection

Love Lives Again

Stations of the Ressurection
This seasonal devotion marks 16 moments in the Eastertide story. From the discovery of the empty tomb right through to the giving of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. With images created by Sr Mary Stephen CRSS and words by Sr Petra Boex OSB this is a wonderful way to meditate on and celebrate the great events and unfolding of our Eastertide story. We made this in the first lockdown of 2020, so we decided to put it up again for you to enjoy this year too. The disc used to make this presentation is purchasable from www.mccrimmons.com which contains a powertoint presentation of the images and text.

The Lectionery and Calendar of the Scottish Episcopal Church can be found here

LGBT rainbow Bible and Cross and hand
We are churches of all sorts of families and households. There are people who come to church alone, with friends, with partners, wives, husbands.....and their dog. The Scottish Episcopal Church welcomes people of all sexualities, discovering who we are is a life-long process for all of us. Both of the churches in this United Benefice welcome LGBT people, their friends and partners. We have worked hard at being a safe space for people to come and discover the depth of their faith, to feed on the jewels of the scriptures and feast on the sacraments. Same-sex couples can be married in both churches too. Come and join us with your household to find out more about belonging in the Scottish Episcopal Church - you are welcome!
