The Church is administered by the Kirk Session, consisting of the minister and elders, and the Congregational Board, consisting of elders and other members of the congregation elected at the Annual General Meeting held in April.

Other congregations using our church building for worship on Sundays are the Charismatic Episcopal Church (Filipino Service) in Edinburgh, the Russian Orthodox Church and Albany Deaf Church when they are able.

In recognition of the many people of other faiths living in the parish and in the city of Edinburgh the church is also part of an outreach programme called Asian Concern.

Greenside is also a partner church in the Care Shelter scheme run by Bethany Christian Trust and the Edinburgh City Mission . The Care Shelter offers a hot meal and overnight accommodation for homeless people in Edinburgh in the winter months.

The congregation has representatives for the national charities Christian Aid  and TearFund and organises regular fundraising events for them. A stall selling fairly traded goods also operates in the church hall after the Sunday morning service.

Church affiliated organisations include Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, Rainbows, Brownies and Guides and the St Andrew's Ambulance Cadets.

The church halls are hired by a number of outside groups, including the Greenside After School Club. The halls are also a successful venue during the month of August for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

For details of meeting times of organisations and groups, or information about hiring the halls please contact us.
