Welcome to Edinburgh: Murrayfield Church of Scotland! Our congregation is a community of people trying their best to love God and to love those around us in our community and world.

We are a busy congregation made up of people of different ages and different backgrounds and with a breadth of interests and views.

There are plenty of different events and activities you can explore and many opportunities for getting involved.

We are always seeking to renew ourselves as a congregation - this involves both staying close to our traditions whilst at the same time trying to develop and respond to the challenges of maintaining a Christian witness in the 21st century.

If you are new here we look forward to getting to know you and you getting to know us.
