ABOUT THE CHURCH
Holy Cross is a small and friendly church where people gather to worship and experience the love of Jesus Christ. We are a Christian fellowship with a strong base of committed members. We welcome all ages and nationalities – those seeking to find their spiritual home in Edinburgh and those who are simply visiting the city on holiday, for study or on business.
The church is situated in the centre of Davidson’s Mains in the north-west of Edinburgh in its own well-tended grounds. People often comment on its beautiful stonework, its stained glass windows and its prayerful atmosphere.
Our main services are traditional Episcopalian Eucharistic worship and our liturgy booklet is easy to follow. The preaching is Lectionary-based Bible preaching with a clear Gospel message. Find out more detail, including weekly service times, by looking at the Services page.
