Greyfriars Kirk, in Edinburgh’s Old Town, has been at the heart of Christian worship and social outreach for many centuries. As well as providing Parish Ministry to a large and diverse city centre and inner city parish, Greyfriars has also overseen the development of the Grassmarket Community Project, an innovative approach to supporting vulnerable people. It has transformed its sanctuary into a multi-use space and is now one of Edinburgh leading arts venues and it offers a ministry of hospitality to pilgrims and visitors from around the world. Greyfriars is also a part of a strong local ecumenical partnership and is pioneering new forms of ministry, such as NiteKirk.
With the support of the Ministries Council of the Church of Scotland, Greyfriars is looking to expand its ministry team with the appointment of a full time associate minister. The person appointed will work with a strong existing team to provide the full range of Parish Ministry alongside the minister and the rest of the team and will be expected to take a full part in proposed community development work in the recently extended parish.
