Welcome to Inverness East Church
Inverness East Church is an evangelical congregation within the Church of Scotland and would be delighted to welcome you to our Church in the heart of the city on Academy Street. Our priorities are worship, the enjoyment of God who has made himself known to us in his Son Jesus Christ, the study of the Bible, evangelism and showing the love of Christ. In these pages, you will discover more about us, our history and our beliefs and you will see something of the work in our parish. You will also be able to download sermons and other resources.
Sunday School takes place every Sunday morning at 11.00am. The children come into church for the first 20 minutes of the service and then go out to their classes.
The children are taught in three groups according to their age.
Girls’ Brigade at the East is a club for Girls ages P1-S6. We do lots of fun activities that build towards achieving badges and make new friends along the way.
Our motto is to help girls to Seek, Serve and Follow Christ.
We meet on Tuesdays in the Church hall from 5.00pm-6.30pm.
Once a month the Youth Group meets on a Friday and all young people in S1 to S6 are invited to come along for an evening of fun, games, food and worship.
We meet on the 3rd Friday of the month from 7.30pm-9.00pm
Come along to our toddler group and enjoy a cuppa and a chat in a friendly, relaxed environment while the children play together.
Thursdays from 10.00am-11.30am
(except the 3rd Thursday in the month)

What We Believe
We believe in one God, who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that this God has made himself known to us, supremely through his Son, Jesus Christ. We believe that the Bible (made up of the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments) is the Word of God. We believe that these Scriptures came into existence through the work of the Holy Spirit and that the Holy Spirit helps us to understand their meaning. We believe that the voice of God, speaking by his Holy Spirit through the Bible, is the final authority for all matters of faith and life. We believe that, because the human race has fallen into sin and disobedience, everyone is in need of forgiveness and salvation. We believe that God, out of his love and mercy, has provided a solution to this problem and that forgiveness and salvation are received through faith in Jesus Christ.
Inverness East is a congregation of the Church of Scotland, in the Reformed and Presbyterian tradition. We stand with the historic Christian Church, in all its parts, in affirming the ancient Creeds. We also stand in the tradition of the Scottish Reformation and hold to the Westminster Confession of Faith as our Principal Subordinate Standard.
