Background

1.

Ernie Gray, former Treasurer of Granton History Group has written about several of the churches in the Granton Area.  His notes can be found on this Granton History Group web page.

In particular, Ernie explains that:

-  Granton Methodist Church was built near the western end of Boswall Parkway in 1937.

-  It was decided in 2001 that the Methodist Church and Congregational Church, both in Boswall Parkway, should unite and that the Congregational Church should be sold.  It was sold to the Seventh Day Adventists.

Thank you to David King, Secretary and Webmaster of Granton History Group, for telling me that, unfortunately, the former Granton Methodist Church is no longer in use.

"Following an amalgamation the former Granton Methodist Church briefly became Granton United Church, but it is no longer in use and may be demolished.

Here is a photograph of the church that I took last week."
