Community Survey

Meadowbank Church serves the Easter Road/ London Road area of Edinburgh and we want to learn from the wider community in our part of the city.

What are the area's needs and how can the church help?

Bethany Night Shelter

We are delighted to be able to work in partnership with Bethany Christian Trust from 8 January until 22 April to provide a ‘temporary emergency’ Care Shelter at Meadowbank Church. The challenge for Bethany was that other church halls in the city centre were not large enough to meet the need and some homeless people had to be turned away. Our hall is able to provide up to 75 spaces for sleeping mats and volunteer catering teams are able to use our kitchen to prepare and serve a warm meal each night to all the guests. The volunteers are quite amazing in the way they serve for so many and the Bethany Staff Team are impressive in the way they welcome guests.




Teams from churches all over the city help with catering each night. This is what our turn looked like!

Service of union and introduction


A Service of Union and Introduction will be held at Meadowbank Church on the 26th October 2017 at 6.45 for 7pm. This service will formally mark the joining together of the congregations of London Road Church and Holyrood Abbey Church to become Meadowbank Church. It will also celebrate the introduction of the Rev Russell McLarty as Transition Minister at Meadowbank.
Friends and neighbours are warmly invited. There will be time for food and chat after the service and we hope that you'll be able to join us for that as well.
