Community

World Mission Team

At Bellevue, we are passionate about telling others the Good News. We believe that everyone needs to hear about Jesus, which is why we've partnered with a few missionary teams around the world.

Home Groups

At Bellevue we believe that church community shouldn’t end on a Sunday. To help facilitate this concept, we have home groups that meet fortnightly at various locations in the city of Edinburgh, on various days of the week. At these home groups, we pray and read scripture passages in depth, sharing insight as well as prayer requests. We ask for commitment to regular attendance and willingness to listen to fellow members of the group you join.

Bible Adventure Club

Children are an important part of the church family at Bellevue, and we have a team of dedicated leaders and helpers who enjoy meeting the children on their journey with God.

BAC gives your children space to learn about God, have fun and make valuable friendships. BAC is for children aged 3-11. We meet each Sunday during the all-age service in four separate age groups. On the last Sunday of the month the children all meet together for a fun-filled programme called ‘Singing Sunday’.

re:vue

re:vue is for all secondary-aged young people. On most weeks during term time, the group meets on a Sunday morning during the All-Age Service (10.30am) for a short session of Bible teaching and activities.

On the first Sunday of each month, re:vuers meet in 'small groups' in cafes near the church for some more informal chat. It's a good opportunity to share friendship and support within the groups, as well as to think over any issues of current interest. Small group time is followed by church lunch, after which we have an afternoon social event.

re:vue also meets for Bible study on alternate Sunday evenings and we attend local youth events like PowerPoint (http://powerpointscotland.com/) throughout the year. With so much going on it’s hard to keep track, but we have a timetable for the term to keep you right! If you need one, ask one of the leaders.

Parents & Toddlers

“Parents and Toddlers” is a lively morning of activity in a safe environment for toddlers and their parents or guardians. The toddlers can get involved in playing, singing, crafts and snacks. Adults can get a chance to spend time with other parents and have a chat and a coffee. Due to popular demand, the Parents and Toddlers sessions now run on both Monday and Wednesday mornings from 10am to 11.30am during term time. There is a £1 charge per family. There are also occasional social events for parents during the year. If you are responsible for a toddler and would enjoy some good activity and company, please consider yourself invited to Parents and Toddlers at Bellevue.

Our Monday group is currently full however there are still some spaces in our Wednesday group. If you have any questions about our Parents and Toddlers groups please contact us.

twenty:thirty

We offer a monthly discussion on a Thursday evening targeted towards those in their 20’s and 30’s, but open to all ages. This discussion usually begins at 7:30pm in the upstairs office of the church, and topics range from current events to practical application of scripture.

We also meet together informally for lots of different activities... walking, ceilidh-ing, eating and more. If you'd like to have regular updates from us, how about joining our Facebook group? https://www.facebook.com/groups/bvdiscussiongroup/

Ladies' Coffee Morning

Ladies' Coffee Morning runs from 10:30am - 11:30am every Tuesday in between the months of October and May. While we always serve coffee, you can depend on so much more than that: home baking, friendly chat, friendships, encouragement for life with all its ups and downs and prayer support when you feel alone or are in times of difficulty.

In addition to weekly meetings, the group also enjoys an annual Christmas lunch and summer bus drive.

CAP Money Course

Bellevue, along with many other churches throughout the UK, periodically runs a money management course created by the charity Christians Against Poverty to help anyone take control of their finances. For more information take a look at our CAP Money page.
