Welcoming, open, affirming.

That's what we try to be at Greyfriars – welcoming to all. We're a lively congregation who serve God, each other and our community, and we believe everyone can find a home here at Greyfriars.

It's great to have you here. We hope to be able to meet and welcome you in person soon!

Welcome to the new Greyfriars Parish Church

Greyfriars Church has undergone a major £100,000 refurbishment to transform it into a community hub for Lanark, fit for the 21st century. The interior of our church has been modernised to create a versatile and flexible space to enable the congregation to worship in more imaginative ways. All the funding for the refurbishment came from individuals within the congregation, as well as generous funding from Border Biscuits Community Support Fund, The Rank Foundation and the Ferguson Bequest.

Replacing the pews with chairs and installing remote controlled blackout window blinds means the building is suitable for a range of activities like theatre productions, film screenings and fitness classes. The new look church, which has been redecorated, rewired and fitted with new carpets and heating system, officially re-opened on 3rd September 2017.

Sanctuary redevelopment programme

We are delighted to announce a major sanctuary redevelopment taking place within Greyfriars this summer. The Kirk Session have unanimously agree to the plans which will bring significant change and improvements within our church.

Our church family were informed of the plans this morning at a special congregational meeting. A second video, a recording of that meeting, that goes over the whole plan for the refurbishment, is available here: https://vimeo.com/211225173

We are all very excited about what is happening in Greyfriars and look forward to you joining us on our journey. Please take a few minutes to watch our announcement (with apologies for the dodgy sound at the very beginning!)
