Richmond Church Cafe – Please note that the Cafe is only open on Thursday mornings at present, from 9am – 12.15pm.  We will let you know if this changes.  

Our locum student, Sam, co-presented the BBC Scotland ‘Reflections at the Quay’ on Sunday 30th May.  You can watch it here. BBC iPlayer – Reflections at the Quay – 30/05/2021  

Fairshare Thursday has moved back into the hall, open from 10.00 – 12.00 on Thursday mornings.  Nearly New is also back!  Entry is from the back (blue) door in the car park.

The BBC programme ‘Reflections at the Quay’ on Sunday 11th April was presented by Rev. Liz Henderson and Rev. Tara Granados, minister of Ibrox Parish Church in Glasgow, on the theme of bereavement.

Liz and Tara speak about bereavement and the work of Richmond’s Hope.  And Skye, who is 15 and has been a huge supporter of Richmond’s Hope since she was very young, is reading on the programme as well. 

You can watch the programme here: BBC One – Reflections at the Quay, 11/04/2021

 COVID-19 UPDATE (28 March 2021)

We’re delighted to have re-opened for worship in church and it was so good to see everyone again.  At present it’s not necessary to ‘book’ a space.  

Our online worship with Duddingston Kirk continues, and you can find links to all our services below, or on the Duddingston Kirk website.    

Our musician, Graeme, has made a playlist of some of our hymns and songs:

‘Making the church part of the community and the community part of the church.’

We are a congregation made up of people from all walks of life, who are committed to our faith, our church and our community. Why not visit us one Sunday? We would love you to come along and join us in worship.

In addition to our regular congregation, many other people help us to serve our community in other ways by offering their time and gifts. See our What’s On page.

Our Sunday service is led by our minister, Rev’d. Liz Henderson. We try to make worship as engaging as possible and use music, art and drama wherever we can. After the children’s part of the service, they gather in a room adjacent to the sanctuary for activities based on the worship theme.
