Welcome to Our Website

Our Church is proud to be a public place of worship. Our doors are open for many acts of worship, weekly and monthly, as well as being home to lots of other groups (both church and non-church). Please join us at sometime - you, your family and your guests are very welcome indeed.

Through the Year with Robin...

Holy Week falls this year between Sunday 13th and Sunday 20th April. These eight days give us many opportunities to reflect on the death of Jesus and his Resurrection, helping us to grow in understanding and in faith. From Palm Sunday all the way through to Easter Day, the power of the story is there for us all to take in.

Perhaps you are wondering how you could engage with Easter this year. The easiest way to do this, of course, is to read an account of the story from one of the four gospels. These are found at Matthew chapters 26-28, Mark chapters 14-16, Luke chapters 22-24, and John chapters 17-21. To read one of these is to grasp the journey of Jesus and his disciples in all its drama. To read two or more through Holy Week allows us to go a step further, taking in the different viewpoints of the different writers and their characters.

Other ways of getting inside the Easter story include the route of film (for example, Franco Zeffirelliís 1977 Jesus of Nazareth, and Brad Birdís remarkable 1999 childrenís cartoon, The Iron Giant, which are widely available on DVD). Also consider the avenue of music, with so many moving religious works by composers ranging from Bach to Rutter.

You are, of course, very welcome to join us in church as we reflect together in our Holy Week services, held jointly across Gladsmuir, Longniddry and Athelstaneford Parish Churches.

This journey of the imagination can be a challenging one to engage with, but as people of faith we have so much to gain through insight and experience, as we walk Christís way of sorrow and sacrifice together.

So join us.

Can't get to the services...?

We have recently started recording some of the Church services - usually the first one of the month. If you can't get to Church on a Sunday, and would like copies of the recordings, please get in touch.

The Young Church

Longniddry Church has three groups aimed at our varied age groups of young people: YCG for S1 age upwards, Sunday Club if you're between 3 - 11 and creche for anyone under 3. New members are always welcome so please just come along at the first service (9.45am) and see what we have to offer. And.... watch our for Messy Church!

We are always in need of extra helpers (and it doesn't have to be every week!!) If you would like to volunteer to help with a group, please contact Kerry Reilly (853201) or email Messy Church
