Advent sees the beginning of the Church’s year. This year we follow the Year B readings which take St.Mark’s Gospel as their guide. Please pray the collect for the day as you light the candles of your Advent ring each week.

The Advent Collect (said every week in Advent)

Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness and to put on the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life, in which your Son Jesus Christ came to us in great humility: that on the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

6th December Advent II

Stir up our hearts, Lord, to prepare the way of your only-begotten Son: that, in his coming, we might serve you with our hearts made pure;

through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Isaiah 40: 1-11; 2Peter 3:8-15a; Mark 1:1-8

13th December Advent III

Stir up our prayers, Lord, and hear us: that they who are sorrowful and suffering may rejoice at the Advent of your only begotten Son; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11; 1Thessalonians 5:16-24; John 1:6-8, 19-28

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.

Whether you are visiting the area, are considering joining our congregation or wish to enquire about a wedding or baptism, please get in touch or follow us via our facebook page
