We are a growing contemporary church in Edinburgh. Our journey began in 1998 in a flat in the city centre, and we now welcome hundreds of people from different age groups, cultures and backgrounds to our Sunday gatherings. We're an Edinburgh church that seeks to authentically love God and practically love all people.

Our Leith venue was built as a Turkish bath in the mid 19th century, before being converted into a cinema. We’re told it has one of the last remaining plaster cinema screens in Europe, and Smith Wigglesworth and other renowned preachers have ministered here since it’s been used as a church building. The Leith venue is a historic building with a contemporary yet homely feel.

Sammy Ewan is the location pastor in Leith. He's married to Helen who works with the kids' church in Leith. Together they have a vision to see a significant and contemporary church in the heart of the Leith community.

“With only 2% of the Leith population connected to a local church there is a great need here for alive, active and relevant churches that want to impact the area with the revolutionary message of Jesus. We're excited to be part of what God is doing here.” (Sammy Ewan)

People of all ages and backgrounds make Destiny Church in Leith their home, and they are passionate about reaching and helping others to find life in Christ.

Our journey...

It's our desire, alongside other churches in Edinburgh, to impact the city with the revolutionary message of Jesus.

We'd love to welcome you in person at one of our Sunday services or midweek events.
