About us



“Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stay awake in vain” – Psalm 127:1b

Presbytery is the gathered life of the Church of Scotland in Edinburgh.  Its work is part of the ecumenical Christian witness in our city.

Presbytery brings together, in a mutually accountable and supportive relationship, ministers, deacons and elders representing local Christian communities in parish, hospital, prison, university and national church administration.


Jesus said, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of people” – Mark 1:17


The leaders of the local church come together to:

·        discern the Holy Spirit’s leading of the Church in Edinburgh;

·        respond appropriately to Christ’s call to follow.
