to MSG Permit Holders and Blue Badge holders only

The Church and Church Centre are located on Kilgraston Road, just 50 yards or so south of the junction of Beaufort Road/Marchmont Road / Strathearn Road and Kilgraston Road.

Arriving by bus from the city centre is relatively easy.  Many Lothian Buses are wheelchair accessible and the stops for the 5, 24 and 41 from the city centre are close at hand with the 24 stopping on Marchmont Road and at Beaufort Road within about 20 yards of the junction noted above, while the 41 stops right at the church gate.  On the city bound services of the 41 and 24 the bus stop on Marchmont Road near to the ScotMid store, while the No 5 stop is on Beaufort Road are the closest to the church.

Arriving by car is similarly easy, however there is no parking available in the church grounds for visitors, with the exception of vehicles accessing the grounds to drop off infirm/disabled passengers only.  Vehicles may be parked in the appropriate bays on Hope Terrace and Beaufort Road.

Cycle racks are located on the north side of the church, off the pathway to the Church centre.    

Access within the Church and Church Centre is user friendly with a ramp access on the north side of the church and level access to the Church Centre at its main entrance in the north side and also by arrangement at the south entrance.  Once inside either part of the building access to the other is by way of an internal ramp on the north side of the church.  The Church currently has space for wheelchairs and carers on the north side.  A loop system is available in the Church for hearing aid users.

Hymn books and orders of service are available in large print.

In the church centre level access is maintained throughout and a disabled toilet (with assistance alarm) is readily accessible. Separate loop systems are installed in Inchkeith / Inchgarvie, the cafe  and the Inchcolm Hall for meetings.

Please contact the Church Office if you have any accessibility queries.
