Mission

Our mission @ St John’s…

…can be summed up in a single statement, but is demonstrated every day by the people who work and worship here.

St John's, by the grace of the Spirit,
seeks to be an open community,
walking in the way of Jesus,
engaging with an ever-changing world and
living a faith that is timeless yet contemporary,
thoughtful and compassionate,

As you will see as you explore this site – or visit us in person – it threads through all our activities, from our services to our outreach, from the way we work together to the way we use our beautiful building in the heart of Edinburgh.
