The Church in Gifford Park was established on 4th September 1994. The building of Gifford Park Church was the former Church in Edinburgh that was dedicated for use on 7th May 1979. Years later, a church building belonging to the Church of Scotland in Comely Bank (the present Church in Edinburgh) was acquired. The whole congregation then worshipped there on the Sabbath and Sundays, while weekday services were held in Gifford Park. This practice continued for four years, but with the increased number of members, the premises in Comely Bank was overcrowded. After a period of consultation, it was agreed that the Church should be branched into two Churches. Comprising part of the congregation of the Church in Edinburgh, the Church in Gifford Park was formed.
When the Church in Gifford Park was established in 1994, there were about 180 members. They all reside close to the Church. From Monday to Friday, there is a prayer session of half an hour in the morning. There are several services throughout the week, e.g. three weekday services, two services on Sabbath Day and one on Sunday. There are also different fellowships catering for different age groups. Spiritual Convocations and Hymnal Evangelistic Services have been held annually. The members of the church board are considerably young in age, gaining experience as they work thus enabling the church to progress steadily. The members are also united to prosper the church. With the help of God, the membership at present exceeds 200.
