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.


St Giles’ goes digitally live for the first time in 900 years

On Easter Day, St Giles’ beamed its service live on YouTube for the first time, as well as welcoming a small in-person congregation. Thanks to two members of the choir for being our live-streaming producers- a career on live TV beckons. If you don’t manage to book a place at the service, you can always find the Sunday service online from now on- as well as our collection of pre-recorded worship.
