The Roman Catholic Parish of St Kentigern is a vibrant, family-friendly community of faith serving the north-west of Edinburgh.
The church was opened in 1966 and was dedicated on 12 September 1966 by Archbishop Gordon Gray of the Archdiocese of St Andrew’s and Edinburgh.
The church serves the following areas Fox Covert, Drumbrae, Clermiston, Parkgrove, Barnton, Cammo, Strathalmond and most of Craigmount.
Architecturally, the church has a hyperbolic parabola roof on four pillars with walls and peripheral offices added. It was built during a time of rapid liturgical and architectural change. There is a magnificent free-standing altar built for celebration facing the people but there are still altar rails. Nevertheless, a great feature of the church is that everyone has a clear unimpeded view of the altar.
