Athelstaneford church is open every day between 9am and 6pm in summer and 9am and 4pm in winter. It is a warm welcoming building which has been extensively restored and refitted.  This was the final part of an eight year restoration, money being raised by the congregation and by grants.  A sound system has also been installed.
