Welcome to the website of Palmerston Place Church.

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 your here in 2019. 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.

Sunday afternoon sees our Service of Thanksgiving & Remembrance taking place at 3pm in the Sanctuary. To remember those important to us who have passed away and are no longer with us for this special time of year. A time for contemplation and the chance to light a candle. 3pm, with tea and coffee is served afterwards

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

Colin is away from PPC until the summer of 2020 as he is currently the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. Information about what he is doing can be found on the page ‘Moderator’s Diary’ 

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’.
