Cathedral Life

An active and enthusiastic congregation, supported by a dedicated team of Ministers, ensures that St Giles’ continues to fulfil its historical role as the High Kirk of Edinburgh, Scotland’s National Church and the mother church of Presbyterianism.  From this page you can navigate to find news and updates which are of interest to our church community and to those who might wish to join us on our spiritual journey.  This site includes our weekly Intimations, details of who is preaching on each Sunday and our Newsletter.


Advent  Appeal

The Advent Appeal – the sixth annual one – took place over the four Sundays preceding Christmas. As always, members of the congregation and friends of St Giles’ have contributed generously. As a result, the Neighbourhood Group will be able to resume its deliveries to the Edinburgh Food Project warehouse , on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, supplying food staples  which are in shortage for the making up of food allocations to needy people.

Sincere thanks to all who contributed.
