Pilrig St Paul's Parish Church of Scotland.

We aim to provide a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere to our worship and events, we have recently formed a Pastoral Care Group to focus on providing pastoral care to our elderly members to supplement the Elders visits and the Minister’s visiting of members with critical needs. Additional contact is provided by a network of people who deliver magazines and flowers.

Our desire is to see the development of regular learning and discussion opportunities for the congregation (bible study, Lent study, house groups etc). We would also like to be able to provide recordings of services for housebound members although the lack of internet access for many older members makes distribution a challenge.

Our principle mission efforts centre around our Music Outreach and the Open Doorway.

We are challenged by the Edinburgh Presbytery ‘Unless the Lord Builds the House…’ report to develop a ministry towards the 20-40 age group in the parish.


We commit ourselves to serve Christ, the Leith Community and Wider World through Worship, Music, Fellowship, Support and Outreach.


Pilrig Church first opened for worship in 1843, the present building was opened in 1863. Pilrig Church united with Dalmeny Street Church in 1950 and again with Leith St. Paul’s to form Pilrig St. Paul’s in 1999.

The congregation currently stands at 250 with 4 adherents, average attendance at worship is around 70. The main age group in the Parish is 20-40 compared to the congregation where it is over 60. This is an area in which we will need to work together to address.
