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 next broadcast will be on Maundy Thursday at 6pm. This will be followed by broadcast worship for Good Friday (2.30pm), the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday (8.30pm) and Easter Sunday (11am).
As from 17 March 2020, ALL Church activities are suspended
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
