Welcome to the Orthodox Church of Edinburgh
St. Andrew's is a pan-orthodox Church based in Edinburgh. We are a parish of the Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain, which is part of the Œcumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. We have services daily and Liturgies regularly on Sundays, as well as on major feasts. We worship primarily in English, but you will also hear Greek, Slavonic and Romanian.
Alongside a full weekly program of services of worship our parish is blessed with a large and lively multicultural community. Among other activities, you will find here catechetical classes, an active student society, a charitable fellowship and community meals. This website contains information about our Church. Additionally, you will find here contact details and timetables for the Orthodox communities of Aberdeen, Dundee, St. Andrews and the Highlands.
We offer students an opportunity to share their discovery and practice of the Orthodox faith, providing them with guidance and insight from various speakers, as well as a regular opportunity to socialize with other Christians.
The Charitable Fellowship organizes fund raising events to help people in need and does other miscellaneous charitable work.
Come and join the choir which sings in Greek and Russian style. We meet for practice every Sunday at 1pm.
Community meals in Edinburgh on St Andrew’s Day (our patronal feast, Saturday 30 November) and on Christmas Day. Please bring some food to share with fellow parishioners in a communal meal after Holy Liturgy.
Jam and Cake Sale, Sunday 8 December, after Holy Liturgy, in aid of the Charitable Fellowship, which supports people in need.
