Scottish Episcopal Church, Diocese of Edinburgh
The Church Belongs to the Scottish Episcopal Church, Diocese of Edinburgh

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. Our aims are to be generous to our local community and to enhance the life of our congregation.

The Congregation welcomes and encourages parents and young children to join us for worship. We will always try to do our best to make you feel welcome. Play mats are available and we have a cupboard full of toys to enjoy. 

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.
