THURSDAY is a very special day of the week for those of us who attend and we would love you to come and join us. You will be made so welcome. Contact the Church Office for more details.
28 Jul @ 10am
Children and families all join together for the first part of our all-age worship at 10am. Parents/carers can then take under 3s to the coffee lounge where our creche includes some short stories from the bible, whilst children aged 3 and over are meeting in the Queen Margaret Hall for an interactive time of learning through stories, crafts, activities and more. Everyone is then invited to come back into church for the end of the service, where we share a little of what we've been learning. Coffee, juice and biscuits are available after the service.

Morning Service 2019
Our more traditional morning service of worship.
Our new session clerk and her team.
My name is Nara Nisbet. I moved to South Queensferry with my husband Paul when I was expecting our first child in 1991. We joined Queensferry Parish Church enthused by the vibrant and welcoming atmosphere. We soon became involved in leading a teenage group within the Church and then I co-ordinated the Youth Fellowship. I have an interest in pastoral work, help with the ‘stepping stones’ bereavement support group, and in recent years have led the pastoral team. My husband Paul and I sing in the Worship band at the 10am service.
I am rather apprehensive but also keen to take up this new role as Session Clerk. It is a privilege to be part of a ‘session clerk team’ and I’m looking forward to supporting the minister and congregation.
My name is Carol McDivitt. I’ve been attending Queensferry Parish Church since 1989. I have been involved in a number of roles over the years, including organising crèche, junior church and roles on the Congregational Board.
I became an elder in 2010 and have been a Deputy Session Clerk for the past four years. My role includes organising rotas for the Sunday Welcome Teams and Communion, including preparation and set up. I enjoy helping in this way as the responsibilities and attention to detail plays to my particular organisational strengths.
I am looking forward to working with Nara and other Depute Session Clerks as we strive to provide a high quality service to the Church community.
My name is Sandra Buttrick and I first attended Queensferry Church in 1991 when I moved to South Queensferry with my husband and four children. I found the church to be most welcoming and felt that within the church family I have found what I had been missing in my life.Session Clerks which I did with a few reservations. However, I found it to be a very rewarding role which I have decided to continue with Nara as Session Clerk. My role as deputy session clerk has been mainly centred around Communion duties but I am looking forward to working with the team and developing other roles within the post.
I became a member of the church in 1994, had my four children baptised in 1996. In 2010 I was asked if I would become an elder and I have enjoyed this role . I have had several roles within the church, Junior Church superintendent being the most challenging and rewarding. I have also sat on several Church committees. I too was asked four years ago if I would like to take on the role as one of the Deputy Session Clerks which I did with a few reservations. However, I found it to be a very rewarding role which I have decided to continue with Nara as Session Clerk. My role as deputy session clerk has been mainly centred around Communion duties but I am looking forward to working with the team and developing other roles within the post.
I am the local registrar in South Queensferry and feel that my job there also helps the church community.
My name is Carol Kelly, and I have been an elder for over 10years
I was involved in setting up the original Eco group and our crèche within the congregation and now help in the Hillstop cafe and in the Community group.
I am also the Presbytery Elder for QPC.
Being part of a team I am happy and excited to help Nara with the duties of the Session Clerk
