Granton United was formally established on 25th August 2004. However. before that, Granton Methodist Church (founded in 1938) and Granton United Reformed Church (founded in 1936 as a Congregational Church) had been sharing worship together since May 1997. A joint Elders Council was established in November 2001 and since then the two congregations have worked increasingly together.
Both buildings were eventually sold with an ambitious rebuild programme undertaken to provide a purpose built building for congregational and community use alongside a small development of flats and houses owned and managed by a local Housing Association.
The new church was dedicated on the 3rd of March 2012.
