Welcome to St Andrew’s and St George’s West


Welcome to St Andrew’s and St George’s West – a place of peace, hospitality, faith and action in the heart of Edinburgh. We are an ever-changing community of people of all ages open to new ways of learning and growing in love and faith.

Come and explore with us – join us on a Sunday at 9am (spoken Communion) 9.45am (all age, lay-led service) or 11am (Morning Worship with great music from our choir and organ) or pop in during the week to our busy café or to one of our events. Check our latest magazine to find out what’s happening, or look at the What’s On page of the website.

If you’re looking for a moment of peace, our Sanctuary is usually open 10am-3pm Monday to Friday, with prayers held at 1pm, and open from 11am-2pm on Saturdays.

St Andrew’s and St George’s West is an Affirming Congregation, affirming the rights of LGBTQ people to play a full part in the life of the Church; a member of Edinburgh Interfaith Association seeking to build understanding between people of all faiths and none, and an Eco-Congregation, striving to reduce its environmental impact and to care for the world.

St Andrew’s and St George’s West is a congregation of the Church of Scotland  and member of the ecumenical partnership Edinburgh City Centre Churches Together. Our minister is Revd Ian Y Gilmour.
