TRUE JESUS CHURCH IN GIFFORDPARK [EDINBURGH]
prayer house in Edinburgh
was established in 1976. The building in
GiffordPark was the first church premises. After eighteen long years, the members' faith
grew stronger. The increase in
membership proved it was necessary to purchase a larger building to accommodate
the members for services, religious education and church activities.
In 1992, the entire congregation
moved to the new premises, with a seating capacity of 300 people, at 15A East Fettes Avenue. The new building originally belonged to the
Church of Scotland.
On 4 September 1994, the building
was officially re-opened to house services, religious education and fellowships
for one third of the members in Edinburgh. The rest of the members went to the new
church. This decision of branching out
was to provide greater involvement and participation of divine work to members,
and to speed up the work of evangelism.
Since 1994, the membership has
increased to 194. The church conducts
many evangelistic services. Examples
include monthly evangelistic services and hymnal evangelistic meetings.
The church organizes various
fellowships to enhance the members' faith of all age groups. The GiffordPark
and Edinburgh Youth Fellowships are held on every Monday and Wednesday. Aside, the Caleb and Ruth Fellowships are
also held regularly to edify the youths and the sisters respectively.
The church provides weekly
services on every Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Chinese classes for the children and
religious education classes are also run on every Sunday. There are about 150 members who attend the
weekly Sabbath service.
There are 7 Church Board Members
in total. Each is assigned to be
responsible for a specific task. Let us
pray that the church in GiffordPark can grow in wisdom
and stature, and in favor with God and men. May all glory be given to our Lord. Amen!
