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 2018.



We currently have an opening for a Ministerial Assistant. If you would like the opportunity to work with us, please see our advert


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”

We are currently undertaking some repair and redecoration work at PPC.

As a result our services are currently not taking place in our Sanctuary.  Our Morning Service is at the Walpole Hall (in the grounds of St Mary’s Cathedral) and our Evening Service is in Annan House.

This Sunday we have a joint service with St Mary’s Cathedral at 10.30am and Evening Worship takes place at the Church of Scotland ‘Heart & Soul’ Event in Princes Street Gardens at 5pm.

Full details are on our Worship page.

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 200 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 Rev Colin Sinclair who has been with us since 1996.

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’.

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.
