At Home with Stockbridge Church


All of our activities have moved online and into the homes and workplaces of our members. 

Stream the latest worship service anytime in your home every Sunday at 11am and Wednesday at 1pm. The links below are updated each week to the latest service.

Watch the Wednesday Service

Many of our members are at home, but some are abroad where they were travelling before lockdown. Some people are by themselves and reliant on neighbours, family and friends. Some care for their family at home. Many have been furloughed and worry about restarting work, others are working from home. And yet others continue to work in hospitals, carehomes and in essential services. Everyone's situation is different, with their own stresses and blessings. Pray for your family, neighbours and colleagues, at home or at work. 

The impact of the global pandemic Coronavirus has forced us to close our church buildings and stop many of our usual activities, but the vital work of the Church goes on and is needed now, more than ever. You can make a donation to Stockbridge Church by following this link (which will take you to the main Church of Scotland website). Thank you for supporting us in the time of unprecedented crisis.

People ask "What can I do to love my neighbour?" Here are some suggestions.

  1. Keep to the guidelines about socialising with people outside your household.

  2. Recite the Lord’s Prayer while washing your hands thoroughly (more than 20 seconds).

  3. Be conscious of keeping a healthy physical distance from people not in your household

  4. Shop for a neighbour if they can't go to the chemist or supermarket.

  5. Contact us if you know someone who needs help but you can't do anything yourselves.

  6. Call a friend or family member to encourage them.

  7. Pray for the homeless.

  8. Give money to someone affected financially.

  9. Donate to a charity offering support to people in need.

  10. Donate to your church so that mission and worship can continue.


We will continue to post regular news here and on Facebook, with services for everyone to share each Sunday morning and Wednesday lunchtime plus a study on Wednesday from 7-8pm to chat. Please let us know of any special items for prayer, and get in touch with the minister or an elder for pastoral help.

 You are invited to come for coffee after the Sunday service on Zoom (from 11:30am). Send an email to minister@stockbridgechurch.org.uk for the details.

Stockbridge Church is a beautiful Georgian building in the vibrant Stockbridge area of Edinburgh. Our friendly congregation of all ages and walks of life come together for worship every Sunday and Wednesday. We recognise that there are numerous ways to build and enrich the community in God’s name by spreading his word and bringing our skills and creativity together through the arts. The Church auditorium also functions as a music venue accommodating a wide range of concerts and events as well as masterclasses and album recordings.  

During August we are an Edinburgh Fringe Festival venue when we host a large variety of music and drama performances. Our hall spaces are frequently used for events, workshops, classes and meetings as well as parties and friends and family get togethers. Please contact us for venue hire enquiries.  

With so much going on in Stockbridge Church, we are glad to be contributing in many ways to make this unique area of Edinburgh a great place in which to live and visit.  It is our task to meet the challenges of creating a vibrant community with faithful creativity and imagination.
