O God, King of Glory, hear our prayer : that as we believe your Son Jesus Christ to be exalted with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven; so also may we know his presence with us now and to the end of time; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

O God, who on the day of Pentecost enlightened the hearts of your people by the fire of the Holy spirit: give us wisdom and understanding, and lead us into all truth, that your Church may be kept in the unity of the Spirit and the bond of peace; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Additional Concluding Prayer by St.Augustine of Hippo

Breathe in me O Holy Spirit that my thoughts may all be holy; Act in me Holy Spirit that my works too, may be holy; Draw my heart O Holy Spirit that I may love what is holy; Strengthen me O Holy Spirit to defend that which is holy; Guard me O Holy Spirit that I may always be holy. Amen.

We are a warm and friendly community with the feel of a village church, despite being just a stone's-throw away from Edinburgh city centre. We come with many different ideas about life, but are joined by one thing – the love of God. We enjoy exploring the challenges the Gospel puts before us and are happy to keep asking questions rather than finding definitive answers.

The Good Shepherd belongs to the Scottish Episcopal Church and we are members of the ecumenical Murrayfield Churches Together.
