Groups & Organisations

The following list will give you an idea of some of the activities at Duddingston.
You do not need to be a member of the congregation to join one and you will be made welcome.
All groups meet in the Church Hall, unless otherwise stated.

Sunday Club
Currently there is no Sunday club at the Kirk. However All are welcome at Duddingston Kirk and this especially includes children.
