20s and 30s Group

This informal social group meets regularly in different locations around Edinburgh for food, lunches, ice cream, coffee, walks, fun and fellowship. It is aimed at people in their 20s and 30s to grow in faith and friendship. 

The group also opens to the whole church regularly to encourage relationships and fellowship amongst all ages in the congregation. Friends/family are welcome. 

Please talk to Rebecca for more information or check out the Facebook Group 'Bristo Baptist Social Group'.

Quiz Night

Presented by Goose's Quizzes, this regularly scheduled night of fun is open to everyone in the church and the surrounding community.

Individuals and groups are welcome! If possible, please register in advance if you plan to come, as snacks will be provided.

Please check our events calendar for the next scheduled quiz night.
