A Monk's Tale - 23rd November

A funny, accessible and entertaining show straight from the Edinburgh Fringe on a UK tour, written by James Carey (who has previously written for 'Miranda' amongst others).

This show is about Martin Luther. And it’s for people who aren’t quite sure which Luther we’re talking about. With a feeling of Horrible Histories and Monty Python, A Monk’s Tale helps the audience understand the unfamiliar medieval mindset, and exactly what Luther was trying to do with his 95 Theses, which sparked one of the most significant movements in history: the Reformation.

Suitable for all ages and all faiths, as well as skeptics, the fast-paced hour-long show also covers the Wycliffe and the Lollards, popes, princes and the seismic changes brought on by the internet of its time, the Printing Press.

Tickets cost £8.50 and are available online at our Ticket Hub, or in Fringes or from Greyfriars Church Office.

Please note that tickets purchased online incur a small booking fee to cover credit card handling fees.

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.
