Every family needs a home, somewhere to get together, to share meals, to rest and find the resources we all need to have a full and active life.
For the family of South Leith Parish Church home is our church building and our halls.
Our Church building is in the Kirkgate, in the heart of Leith, just through the Kirkgate shopping centre at the foot of Leith Walk. (Leith is the historic port for Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland). You can see the location on this map.

We regularly sharing in the sacraments of Communion and Baptism.
We celebrate our festivals of Harvest, Christmas, Easter and Pentecost.
We remember the past, we enjoy the present and we look to the future with hope.

Any home reflects the lives of its inhabitants, past and present and that is very true of our historic building where war memorials, coats of arms and magnificent stained glass windows are found next to a library, a refurbished gathering space and a prayer area. (for more information about our past see HISTORY) We like to have our special building open and used as much as possible and it is possible to arrange tours, weddings and concerts. We have disabled access facilities and parking available.
