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


We’re a community of 300-odd people exploring faith, hope and love in Edinburgh in the 21st century. In seeking to follow the way of Jesus we commit ourselves to loving service of God and of neighbour.

Come and explore with us – join us for worship, help to change the world for good or just drop into our award-winning Undercroft Café for great home made food and friendly company.  We’d love to see you!

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.

During winter months (January – March) the weekday church is open Monday-Friday 10am-3pm, and the Undercroft Café 10am-2pm.
