Reflections for Holy Week


God is for us

“He did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all.”
Romans 8:32

It takes what it takes. Salvation is a serious business. Such is the nature of humanity and what confronts us, that our Lord will do whatever is necessary to deliver us from it – which also means delivering us from ourselves. And nor does he not spare himself in the process.

Try Praying – for those who don’t do church

As in previous years, there is an encouragement to pray this April. It is intended for ordinary folk who don’t see themselves as religious but want to try praying. East Coast Buses will carry a promotion, directing people to - a website belonging to There is Hope. Booklets and other resources for children and adults may be ordered free, or you can download a 7-day app to get you started.

Church Information during Covid-19 pandemic


As people will be aware, we are in an evolving situation nationally. As a church we are trying to listen to advice and take what precautionary measures we can. In line with current Government and NHS guidance, the most important thing to protect yourself and other people is to maintain good standards of hygiene.

Sunday Club

At Pencaitland Parish Church we have a small but enthusiastic Sunday Club which is open to children and young people of all ages. It is led by a team dedicated to demonstrating the teachings of the Bible and sharing the Christian message. The Sunday Club meets in the Carriage House after the first part of the morning service.

Connections Cafe

Every Friday from 10.30am - 2.30pm in the Carriage House

OPEN  for hot and cold drinks, light lunches and, of course, home baking!



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.
