The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close

We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with  COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the   spread of infection in order to save lives.

Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, St Ninian’s church and all   church buildings in the Scottish Episcopal Church are now closed.

The Scottish Episcopal Church’s website contains details of how to join others for prayer, worship, study, and community life as detailed below.

For online worship,
click here .  A new service is available each week on Sunday at 11.00am. There is also a Service of the Word each Thursday at 6.30pm.  This page has links available throughout the following weeks to the  Scottish Episcopal Church’s YouTube page  and Facebook channel. Links  are on the page to download in a video (MP4) or audio( MP3) format. The page also has details of how to access a telephone version of these services

As from 17 March 2020, ALL Church activities are suspended

Welcome to the website of St Ninian’s Scottish Episcopal Church  earDisabled

At St Ninian’s we  offer a warm  welcome to visitors, new residents in Comely Bank and Stockbridge, and old friends. Irrespective of whether you’re an Episcopalian or Anglican, adhere to another Christian denomination or haven’t been to  church  before, we'll be pleased to see you.

We’re part of the  Scottish Episcopal Church, which is an independent member of the world-wide  Anglican Communion. We’re Scottish because we trace our history back to Celtic Saints like Ninian and Columba, and the earliest known Christian communities in Scotland, and Episcopal because we maintain a form of church order of bishops, priests and deacons.  St Ninian’s belongs to the  Diocese of Edinburgh, one of seven dioceses  covering the whole of  Scotland  and bearing witness to our faith today.

The Scottish Episcopal Church is present in communities across   Scotland and has become known for its involvement in the social  issues affecting Scottish society, for its members engage in roles of active Christian leadership on peace, justice and human rights issues as well as having pastoral and educational roles. The Church works with other Christian denominations, faith, and belief communities in Scotland.

Deep peace of the running wave to you
Deep peace of the flowing air to you
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you
Deep peace of the shining stars to you
Deep peace of the gentle night to you
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
Deep peace of Christ,
The Light of the world,
To you
