About St James Scottish Episcopal Church

11a Johns Place, Leith EH6 7EL
St James Scottish Episcopal Church Website

The Scottish Episcopal Church is a welcoming and inclusive church that traces its history back to the beginnings of Christianity in Scotland. We are the Scottish province of the worldwide Anglican community… a huge family of over 70 million Christians in more than 160 countries, including The Church of England, The ChurchofIrelandandThe ChurchinWales. The word ‘episcopal’ has ancient origins and came to be used by churches that recognise the leadership of Bishops. There has been a Scottish Episcopal congregation of St James worshipping every Sunday in Leith for over 300 years – but these days, of course, we know we are just one ‘inlet’ in the diverse ocean of faith.
