Welcome to Greyfriars Kirk, a worshipping congregation of the Church of Scotland in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town where a church has stood since 1620. We try to be a welcoming, inclusive community and to respond to local needs in a variety of ways. Worship takes place during the week as well as on Sundays in English and Gaelic.

The Kirk is a major venue for the arts, a tourist destination and through the Grassmarket Community Project we support some of our most vulnerable citizens.

The surrounding Kirkyard is the resting place of many prominent citizens, including James Hutton, Robert Adam, Mary Erskine and Henry Mackenzie.

Our museum tells the story of religious activity on the Greyfriars site from Franciscan times to the present day and boasts, among other artefacts, one of only a handful of original copies of the National Covenant signed in the Kirk in 1638. You can also view the oil painting of Greyfriars Bobby by John MacLeod.
