Muddy Kirk

Children are very welcome at Duddingston Kirk.

 Our next Muddy Church is on Saturday 2nd October at Duddingston Kirk Manse Gardens from 11am-12:30pm.

The weather is getting wilder so please dress appropriately and be careful on the paths.  (We'll only call it off for high winds or lightning).  It'll be the usual format - but as well as exploring the gardens there will also be the opportunity to make a COP26 placard for whichever of the events / marches you are planning to attend.

Enter via the church hall car park off of Duddingston Road West.  Go across the car park and follow Muddy Church signs through the path from the car park, going past the manse and winding around leading to a grassy opening by the Garden Café. You’ll find Reuben and our Muddy Church volunteers waiting by a bench to meet you there.


We gather together for a game and welcome, have time to explore the gardens with prayer/nature activities, and then re-gather for a short interactive worship time.  Participants are welcome to bring a picnic to sit on the grounds afterwards for lunch.


All ages are welcome. Dress for the weather as this is an outside church.  We hope you can join us!
