Aberlady Parish Church

The church in its present form dates from 1886-7, when it was remodelled by London architect William Young for the 10th Earl of Wemyss, although the tower is from the mid-1400s.

In 1986, Aberlady and Gullane Parishes were linked under one minister: the Gullane manse was retained while the Aberlady manse was sold, and the Kirk Stables was renovated.

The parish is served by the Rev Brian Hilsley LLB BD. Please see the church website for service times.



For all enquiries, please contact the church secretary or visit the church office in the Kirk Stables.
