Only services that are currently available during COVID-19 are listed in the directory.

In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available.

St Peter’s garden...

St Peter’s is very fortunate to have a quarter acre of sunny garden in south central Edinburgh.

Local residents and workers often sit in our garden to eat a picnic, play with their children or just sit and contemplate. In the summer we have barbecues and a summer fair in the garden. Check our calendar for updates on what’s on.

A garden of remembrance sits beside the Millar Chapel.

The garden is maintained by a team of volunteers.

Please contact the church administrator to make an enquiry.
