News from the Parish


Welcome to the website of Pencaitland Parish Church which, we hope, provides a good sense of what our Church community is like. We've tried to show who we are, what we believe, what we're praying for and how we seek to grow in faith alongside each other and bring glory to God. 

Guests are most welcome at our Family Service held each Sunday at 10:45a.m. We understand that going to a Church can feel a bit daunting if you're not used to it, so we aim to be welcoming and to put guests at ease. You'll be greeted at the door and given a song book and a notice sheet that includes the order of service and other announcements. Please sit wherever you feel most comfortable. Music will be playing as people arrive and there's usually chatter as folk catch up with one another before the service begins, creating a buzz.  We want guests to feel relaxed and to enjoy the service.  Welcome cards are on the pews and you can use them to give comments, express interest in activities or make prayer requests. If you wish to do so, you're welcome to join us for coffee and refreshments afterwards in the Carriage House where parking is available. We look forward to welcoming you.

Pencaitland Church - A History

The following history of Pencaitland Church was written as a “walk-around” guide to this beuatiful place of worship. It was written by R.W.Barker, Session Clerk for over thirty years, and first published in 1970. It was subsequently reprinted in 1993, following the celebration of the church’s 750th anniversary of its consecration. Please click here to read the history booklet.
