I thought I'd posted about this before Christmas but apparently not... Dean Parish Church closed in November. This had been coming for some time, as it had been without a permanent minister, and earmarked for closure in the Edinburgh Presbytery Plan. Very sad.

Congregation has been dissolved as opposed to uniting with another nearby so I'm not sure what will happen to the moveable memorials.

Church will be sold, but to date it hasn't appeared on CofS property pages.
