Where Everyone is Welcome!

Welcome to the website of EUCC!  We’re a small congregation in the beautiful fishing town of Eyemouth just a few miles from the Scottish- English border.  We are a family with folks from different backgrounds coming together to support each other and live together on the journey of faith.  We believe the Good News of Jesus and seek to live in his light and love.  We welcome everyone, no matter who you are or what you’ve done; your background, gender, sexuality, race, ability, understanding; no one is excluded.  We believe God asks us to join with him in building his Kingdom and his expansive embrace is for all.  Sadly, all too often the Church is known for judgementalism and exclusion – which is counter to the message and example of Jesus!  We’re far from perfect and we get it wrong, but when we do we show we are a place of forgiveness and second chances.  We strive to be a family where you can take off the mask and be yourself.  

We meet every Sunday morning at 11.00am for our main service.  There we get together to sing, read the Bible, pray and grapple with life and faith.  The service lasts an hour and then we hang out for tea and coffee and a good blether.  During the week we also have coffee mornings (Tuesdays 10-11.30), book groups, Bible groups, craft clubs and afternoon teas.  There are meals most months and every third Sunday it’s a soup lunch after the service.  We also run a toddlers group on Monday mornings and the building is used by other community groups and businesses for different events.  

We do weddings (and we believe in and practice equal marriage), baptisms, hospital and home visitations and our Minister is always available for coffee and a chat on anything.  

So whether you’ve just moved to the area and are looking for a Church, or you’ve been here for years and wonder what we’re about you can be sure of a warm welcome anytime.  Look at our Events page for what’s coming up or check us out on Facebook.  

What’s in a name?
Our official name is Eyemouth United Congregational Church but we are most commonly called ‘The EU’.  We’re also historically known as ‘the Fishermen’s Kirk’, celebrating our strong association with the town’s fishing fleets.  Find out more on our History page
