About

Grahamston United Church was formed in 1972 following a union of two Church of Scotland Congregations, a URC (formerly Congregational) Congregation and a Methodist Congregation. We are one of the first inter­denominational Churches in Scotland. Our congregation was further enhanced when St James Parish Church was assimilated into the United Church in 2018 following the closure of their building. As a congregation we are proud of our ecumenical background and -whilst anxious to uphold the essence of those three traditions – after almost 50 years of worshipping together, we now look upon ourselves as one united church, where denomination is significant but no longer all consuming. As a church we remain committed to the sharing of the gospel with the whole world through worship, fellowship and mission of the church.

We exist to:

  • Celebrate God’s presence in worship

  • Educate God’s people in discipleship

  • Demonstrate God’s love in service to all

  • Communicate God’s story through Jesus Christ
