Do you have a friendly and welcoming manner, good communication and interpersonal skills, and an interest in history? Serving as a volunteer Kirk Welcomer may be for you!

Greyfriars Kirk welcomes over 40,000 visitors each year who come to the church for a variety of reasons; as a place of reflection, because of their interest in the history of the kirk, or to learn more about the legendary Greyfriars Bobby and JK Rowling.


  • Greet and explain to visitors the Kirk and Kirkyard layout and resources
  • Provide information about the important heritage of the Kirk and its place in Scottish history
  • Undertake short historical tours within the building and Kirkyard, assisting those who may be interested in tracing their heritage or in finding the grave of a particularly notable figure.
