We are creating a building fit for worship in 21st Century. Visit our new Marlborough sanctuary and see how we use audio-visual technology. More exciting improvements are planned. Seeing is believing.
Founded in 1899, Broomhill Church was extended in 1903 to accommodate an expanding population in the Broomhill area. The population continues to expand and Broomhill Church is excited to be at the heart of the community. The church and halls are in use every day from BOSCA before school care, through toddler groups, dancing classes, badminton club, coffee mornings and youth organisations. Broomhill Church wants to welcome you and your families. There truly are activities for all ages and our doors are open to the local community and beyond. Journey with us as we evolve and adapt our historic buildings for use in modern times. From small beginnings in 1899 to the present day, the immense dedication and generosity of many people have given us a building to be proud of. You can tour our new smaller sanctuary within the sanctuary, see a showcase of vibrant scenes from everyday life in the building on our new screens, and view our plans to improve the front vestibule. You also have a rare chance to see our eye-catching pulpit falls up close, embroidered by the renowned Hannah Frew Paterson in 2000. Fun Facts Our warm and welcoming sanctuary played a walk-on part in the 2013 movie “Sunshine on Leith”. Our previous minister played himself in an episode of Taggart. Our services have been televised seven times over recent years, and we have also appeared in radio broadcasts. In 2017, Broomhill Church will unite with Hyndland Parish Church, and so begin an exciting new chapter.
