What time are the services?
Currently we have one Sunday service at 11am.
How long are your services?
Our services usually last for about 75 up to 90 minutes, though you may like to allow some time after the service to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and meet some people!
What should I expect from a service?
Our services feature an exciting mix of live music, often with high impact media and a relevant, applicable message. You’ll find a positive, warm, friendly environment waiting for you when you arrive, with tea and coffee available both before and after the service. You’ll also find the friendly, welcoming and diverse group of people that make up our church; people of all ages gathering together to meet with God, make friends and generally have a good time!
What should I wear?
The simple answer is that you can wear whatever you like (as long as you wear something)! Casual, smart, smart-casual – whatever you’re comfortable in is fine. If it helps, Pastor Glenn usually wears jeans and a shirt.
Where can I park?
There’s plenty of parking in the Queen Margaret University carpark. It is free parking. Our wonderful hosts (in the high-viz vests) will gladly direct you from the car park area towards our meeting space.
Is there public transport?
Yes, the number 30 Lothians bus comes to the front door and the Musselburgh train station is just outside the front gate. Catch the North Berwick train and it’s a few minutes from city centre.
Are there activities for children?
Oh yes! We have a fantastic programme for children running alongside every service. What’s more, you can register your kids 30mins before the services starts, so you can relax and enjoy the experience while they’re having a great time with our dedicated kids team.

How about teenagers?
Our church has a youthful feel that any teenagers are sure to find refreshing and exciting. We have special events happening for teenagers too, under the “Pulse” banner, including fortnightly events, fortnightly connect groups and regular social events.
Is there wheelchair access?
Yes. We have parking spaces available right outside the venue for individuals who may have mobility problems. The entrance has level access, most people use the lifts and of course, there are disabled toilet facilities too.
Does anything happen during the week?
Quite a bit, yeah. We have Connect groups every fortnight – an opportunity to gather together in smaller groups in people’s homes, to hang out, eat together and delve deeper into the messages from a Sunday.
Pulse often has stuff happening during the week too. There’s plenty of occasional, ad-hoc and spontaneous stuff going on too, which you can usually find out about on a Sunday or
via this very website. If you give us some contact details here, we can email you about what’s happening too.

How can I get involved?
We’re a church that thrives on the involvement of volunteers and there are many different areas in which you can get involved in the life of our church. First Impressions and Setup Team are a great place to start, but there’s a number of other areas too. Please go to our Info Point or speak to a leader or contact us here.
What denomination are you?
Hope! Church is in relationship with the Assemblies of God in Scotland. Our Lead Pastors are ordained with Australian Christian Churches and the Assemblies of God in Great Britain; You can find out more about what we believe here.
And finally, do I have to be a Christian to come along?
Definitely not. We appreciate that everyone is on a journey and that many people are searching for spiritual truth. We think that’s a good thing. We hope that our church is somewhere you can feel both comfortable and challenged; a safe environment in which to find out more about God and what it means to have a relationship with Him.
