Sunday School

Sunday School at Old Parish & St. Paul's caters for Boys and Girls from their pre school year up to their teenage years.  The Children meet in 2 age groups, P1 to P3 Group and P4 to P7 Group.


Primary Sunday School - is suitable for children aged 4 to 7 years. The group is led by Maria along with help from Irene. They use material from Scripture Union and enjoy listening/watching bible stories, followed by a craft to reinforce the topic discussed. The children also learn choruses which they showcase in church from time to time.




Xplorers  - is the group for the P4-P7 age group. Currently the group has 10 members.

The group is led by Anne or Rodger along with a weekly helper from the congregation.

The group normally uses the SU X-Stream material.

This focuses on themes using bible passages and often some crafts or games are also used to help illustrate the message.

Teens UGC (Under Ground Church) FOR ALL S1-S6

UGC meet every Sunday during term time.  We meet at the church at 11.00 and then have our own meeting from 11.20 – 12.15 ish. 

UGC have their own downstairs meeting room which is literally ‘under the church’ hence the name!

We use a variety of materials but mostly Scripture Union resources and look at the Bible in a challenging way & to help to equip young people to take ownership of their own faith. 

Depending on commitments the UGC try to have either an annual weekend or a day away which is a mixture of Bible based activities/fun/eating!

We try to do the Powerpoint events in Edinburgh where possible.  This is an opportunity for our young people to be part of an event where there are several hundred people of their own age and there is a speaker/band etc.  The next Powerpoint is on 13th June 2014. 

UGC try and do at least one fund raising event every year and money raised is given to a variety of Christian charities.  

Leaders are Anne & Ishbel with other occasional guest leaders.  For more information email us at: or    



Scripture Union

The Focus Scripture Union Group now meet in the large hall on a Wednesday evening between 6.30 and 8.00pm.

The group is open to any young folk from P7 to S3.

If you know anyone in this age group, encourage them to come along. They will be made very welcome.
