St Bride’s Episcopal Church worships within the Prayer Book and Anglo-Catholic traditions.

We are part of the Scottish Episcopal Church which traces its history back to the beginnings of Christianity in Scotland. The Scottish Episcopal Church is a Province in, and member of, the world-wide Anglican Communion.

The Eucharist lies at the heart of our worship and a sung celebration using the Scottish Liturgy 1970, a traditional language rite, forms our main Sunday act of worship. In normal times, there is a full programme of daily services and a monthly Choral Evensong and Benediction. We offer and value the Sacrament of Penance (more usually known as Confession).

St Bride’s is one of a very few Anglican churches in Scotland that, in normal times, sings the Mass, with full Propers, every Sunday morning. A variety of settings of the Mass, from Renaissance polyphony (e.g. Byrd), to Viennese settings by Mozart and Haydn and Anglican settings by Stanford and Leighton, are sung.

All are welcome to come to our services and all baptised Christians are invited to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion. All may come to the altar to receive a blessing at the Eucharist.

Our Clergy and Pastoral Team are always available to offer a listening ear, or, where appropriate, practical help and support.

Come and join us – you will be most welcome.
