Sundays are an important day for us at Carrubbers as we meet together for worship, to hear from God's word and to encourage each other. Below we'll describe what normally happens on a Sunday and we list what is happening this week on the front page.
On a Sunday morning we start the day with a free breakfast service which is largely for the homeless in Edinburgh.
We normally have two main morning services, at 9:45am and 11:30am which are broadly similar in nature. At the first morning service there is a full crèche and Sunday school for children who are under the age of eleven as well as Bible class for those of high school age. At the second service there is a crèche for babies and pre-schoolers and we also provide activity packs for primary aged children to use during the service.
After the morning services, tea and coffee is served giving a chance to meet visitors, build friendships with new people as well as catch up with folks. Every few months we hold "newcomers" lunches which provide an opportunity to find out more about the church and how to get involved in some of the things which are going on.
In the evening we have a service at 6:30pm. Services at Carrubbers are led by a group of service leaders, each of whom has their own style and brings different musical and worship content to the services. However, at the heart of every service is a time spent hearing the Bible expounded to us. Each of these sermons is recorded and there is a huge library of recordings from the past ten years at Carrubbers which are available online.
After the evening service Logos, our student and young workers ministry, meets over a meal. This is a chance to relax and be fed both physically and spiritually. It is a good chance to meet other students and share with each other as we grow in Christ together.
There are a number of specific ministries which are active in this area. They are...
