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.

St Andrew’s and St George’s West at Festival Time 

Come and explore our programme of over 70 concerts and events at the world’s largest Arts Festival. We have classical, jazz, Scottish, sacred and world music and more for you. Buy tickets at the church box office or through the Fringe.

The Power of Music

Don’t miss our Power of Music events where Scottish American mezzo Andrea Baker takes a break from the stage to interview leading authors Louise Welsh, Sir Geoff Palmer and Val McDermid about  their favourite pieces of music.

We’re open 7 days a week

Our award-winning Undercroft Café is open 10-4 Monday to Saturday during the Festival. Pop in for a coffee, home baking or a light lunch!.

Join us for worship

You’re welcome to drop in for peace and quiet – our prayer space is open throughout the day and a short time of prayer at 1pm. On Sundays choose from three different services. There’s a short spoken communion at 9am; a lively all-age service at 9.45am and traditional morning worship at 11am. Albany Deaf Church holds a BSL signed service at 2pm on some Sunday afternoons.
