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.

Come and explore with us – join us for worship, come along to one of our events or just drop into our award-winning Undercroft Café for great home made food and friendly company.  We’d love to see you!

Summer in the City

We love Edinburgh at Festival Time! Bring your family (children aged 3-12) to our creative workshops with music, dance and food. Listen to world-class music in our Georgian Sanctuary as part of  our festival programme. Meet leading Scottish authors at our Book Festival Fringe. Enjoy adventures in worship in August – celebrate 250 years of Edinburgh’s New Town, or enjoy a Children’s Communion.

You can listen again to the service broadcast by the BBC on 20 August.
