About Quiet Advent

Enjoy 20 minutes of quiet reflection by candlelight in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town.

Every Monday in Advent at 3pm, St Columba’s by the Castle offers the opportunity to de-stress from the busyness of the pre-festive period.

Whatever your religious affiliation or lack thereof, you are most welcome to enjoy calm, candlelight, silence, poetry, and readings for 20 minutes. You can stay as long as you want and light a candle at any time.
