Summer with the Gathering

We’ve got lots of exciting things planned for the summer. Join us for any of the following:

4 July : 6:30pm / Worship (at Nicolson Square Methodist Church)

Our next Gathering is Wednesday 4 July, and the theme is Story. It will be a storytelling evening, and YOU are the storytellers! Share a story of your own life, someone else’s, folklore, a poem or song that tells a story… whatever you like. As usual, we’ll be heading to a pub afterwards too.

9 July : 7pm / Mission Meeting (at Spoon)

12 July : Art+Poetry+Music Event for YMCA Edinburgh

14-15 July : Walking Weekend in Glencoe

On Saturday 14 July, we’re headed to Glencoe for some moderate walks in the area. We’ll hang out, cook, and stay at a hostel that night. Sunday, we’ll probably do another short walk before driving back to Edinburgh.

Cost will include the hostel stay (around £20 pp) and a few pounds to chip in for communal food.

The deadline to sign up is Wednesday, 4 July. Let us know via Facebook, in person, or email (And if you have a car, please let us know if you’d be willing to drive!)

1 Aug : 6:30pm / Worship (place TBA)

11 Aug : 7pm / Songs & Stories (at Double Dutch)

15 Aug : 6:30pm / Worship in Nicolson Square Gardens

18 Aug : Worship Flashmob! + Festival Hang-out (place & time TBA)

26 Aug : Paralympic Flame Festival


the Gathering

The Gathering is a Christian Community in the heart of Edinburgh. Join us for a twice monthly act of creative worship and at plenty of times in-between for nights out, nights in, weekends away and more. Worship is on the first and third Wednesday of every month – tea/coffee and chat at 6:30, worship at 7:00, and pub fellowship after!

All are invited to bring their creative ideas to the Gathering. Can you tell stories? write poetry? dj? dance or create art? Contact us at to share your ideas.
