Welcome to St John’s
St John’s is a thriving Scottish Episcopal congregation at the heart of Scotland’s beautiful capital city.
Our mission is summed up in the five St John’s AMEN-S:
1. Affirm and deepen the faith of the members of the congregation
2. Make new disciples of Jesus Christ
3. Embrace the care of creation and advocacy for eco-justice
4. Nurse the wounds of those who are hurting body, mind, or soul
5. Speak truth to the powers of the world
