Who are we?
We are a group of Christians who live in and near the community of Portobello, Edinburgh. We are seeking to learn about, and follow the lifestyle and teachings of Jesus Christ. Portobello Baptist Church is situated at 189 Portobello High Street Edinburgh EH15 1EU.
The building has an interesting history, having served as a dance hall, a cinema and Portobello Town Hall! If you want comfortable cinema seats, we have them!
We are excited about the new thing that God is doing in our midst. New people are coming each week with a desire to live the Jesus-life in the world in which He has placed us. Our attendance has more than quadrupled since 2011. Our Wednesday prayer & discussion over coffee has grown from four to a regular sixteen to eighteen. Our recent Carols By Candlelight saw one hundred and fifty people packed in to a multi-media celebration of Christmas. GOD IS ON THE MOVE!
You may be a Christian, or you may just be interested in exploring spirituality. You may be unclear as to what you believe, but you are seeking a safe place to ask your questions. All are welcome here. We are all on a journey of discovery when it comes to God. Why not join us and learn with us?
We meet each Sunday at 11.00am. We also meet each Wednesday at 7.30pm in the church café, (directly on the High Street). We drink lots of coffee and discuss ways in which our lives can be shaped by the teachings of the ancient Christian scriptures.
If you are visiting our website with a view to understanding the Christian Faith, or if you are a Christian looking for a spiritual home, why not visit on a Sunday or Wednesday. We don’t bite, and some people have actually said we are quite normal and even friendly. If you have questions, then feel free to fill in the contact form on the website and meet for coffee and chat. We believe Jesus is the Son of God and is the means of healing and salvation to the world and to each individual.
All are welcome
