Welcome to the website of Palmerston Place Church.

Due to the current situation regarding coronavirus we are following advice from the Government and the Church of Scotland. As a result, all services of worship across the country are cancelled until further notice. All physical meetings and activities have been cancelled and we are offering Online Worship and activities.

We continue to offer pastoral care and support online and via the telephone. Our Ministerial Team remains available for bereavement support and the conducting of funeral services.

Online Sunday Worship is available by clicking here.

Palmerston Place is a city centre Church and is a gathered congregation drawing in people from all across Edinburgh. It has a real family feel. We would love to welcome you here in 2020.

We are located at 12 Palmerston Place, Edinburgh, EH12 5AA. Palmerston Place is located between the West End of the city and the Haymarket area.

In addition to the Sanctuary at Number 12, we have our Annan House building, located at 10 Palmerston Place, which is home to the Church Office, meeting rooms and offices leased to several charitable organisations.

Palmerston Place is a forward thinking church which is always looking at how it serves those around it – this is reflected in its aim of “Bringing Christian Worship, Fellowship and Service to the heart of everyday life”

Sunday Worship is at 11am and 6.30pm (there are no 6.30pm services in July and August). On a typical Sunday we have close to 160 people at the morning service and around 40 people at the evening service. On a Sunday morning we have a Crèche and a number of groups for children and young people.

PPC has a reputation of biblical preaching and music is a mixture of traditional and new. Our Minister is the Very Rev Colin Sinclair who has been with us since 1996.

Colin has just completed his year as the the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland and he will return to PPC in July.

You can listen to the sermons by going to the ‘Sermons’ page. Our sermon archive is also available.

During the week we have a wide range of groups and activities from a Baby & Toddler Group (meets during School term-time), to a Friendship Club for Over 60s to the monthly Sunflower Café for those struggling with the issue of memory loss and their carers. We also have a number of stand-alone events. Please look at the ‘Activities’ section of the website and ‘This Month @PPC’.
