Welcome to St John's

St John's is a thriving Scottish Episcopal church at the heart of Scotland’s beautiful capital city. Here we aim to express love for God and neighbour in all that we do. And to help people discover for themselves the significance of Jesus Christ.

You would be very welcome to join us for worship at one of our Sunday services. And if you would like to be involved in other ways you will find plenty of opportunities on this website. If you want to know more please contact us.
