We are an open and inclusive community. Whoever you are, and however you identify, you will find a welcome here.

We are a congregation of the Diocese of Edinburgh within the Scottish Episcopal Church.

With our partner congregations St Cuthbert’s Church of Scotland & St Andrew’s and St George’s West Church of Scotland
we form Edinburgh City Centre Churches TOGETHER.

We are an eco-congregation, a fair trade church and a member of the Creative Carbon Scotland Green Arts Initiative.

We continue to work and pray for the full inclusion of LGBTQIA+ people in the life of the church and in society.

St John’s, by the grace of the Spirit, seeks to be an open community, walking in the way of Jesus, engaging with an ever-changing world and living a faith that is timeless yet contemporary, thoughtful and compassionate.
