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 neighbour.
Summer in the City
Love music? Our Sanctuary is a fabulous venue for music of all kinds – classical, jazz, organ, world and more. Have a look at St Andrew’s and St George’s West at Festival Time – a month of music, books and art in August – and plan your culture trip.
Books more your thing? We have a mini-book fringe for you too. Come and listen to broadcaster James Naughtie and author Bernard MacLaverty in conversation with mezzo-soprano Andrea Baker about the music that has influenced them most.
Just chilling? take a moment in quiet space away from the hustle of George Street, be guided by daily reflections at 1pm or discover our friendly café with great food.
