Yester, Bolton and Saltoun Church is the parish church in the villages of Gifford, Bolton and East and West Saltoun and their surrounding area in the heart of the beautiful East Lothian countryside, between the open moors of the Lammermuir Hills and the Forth estuary with its sandy beaches and lovely harbours.
We seek to be a church where people of all generations within the community
experience and celebrate the love of God.
