Welcome from Rev Bryan Kerr, Minister
I’m delighted that you’re taking a closer look at Greyfriars Church!
Picking a church can be difficult. There are many great churches in our area and each one has a unique personality and characteristics. This may sound surprising, but our primary hope is not that you would join our church, but rather, that you will get involved with the community of people that will most encourage your own faith however you seek to experience it.
Greyfriars Church is a welcoming and progressive Christian community where people of all backgrounds are to be found. We are a church with doors open to all people.
Even as our faith is over 2,000 years old, our thinking is not! As progressive Christians, we believe that our faith is enriched by the insights of new discoveries and learning, that questioning and even doubt are key parts of our journey, and that engaging society and having a dialogue with contemporary culture is necessary to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. The progressive approach to Christian faith is a rich and varied part within contemporary Christianity, one that combines insights from many forms of Christianity in order to claim and proclaim a faith that is deep and yet open, strong and yet flexible.
Throughout our website we have resources that we hope will help you find our more about Greyfriars. However, in a website we can only scratch the surface of what we are about and give a small flavour of the work and worship that takes place in our church.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. However, the best way to find out who we are is to experience us in person—come join us!
With all best wishes,
Rev Bryan Kerr
