Scottish Episcopal Church - Diocese Of Edinburgh

Charity registered in Scotland SC001214

Edinburgh Diocese stretches from the Firth of Forth down to the English border. We’re one of 7 dioceses in the Scottish Episcopal Church, and part of the world wide Anglican Communion; a diverse community united in our love of Jesus of Nazareth. This diversity is expressed in our many different churches, worship styles, theologies even, but we are united in our commitment to Jesus. We believe his teachings inspire us and help us give meaning to life, and that in knowing Jesus we get to know a God who sets us free to live life, ‘in all its fullness.
