Introduction

Holy Cross Church, Davidson's Mains, Edinburgh

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.

Music is an important part of our worship and praise. We have a small but excellent choir led by our Organist and Choirmaster, Vaughan Townhill. New choir members are always welcome – see the Music & Choir page for information about practice times.

Families and young people are warmly welcomed at services and events. On Sundays a crèche is always available for babies and very young children. During school term-times there are Sunday School lessons for primary school pupils. For more details see the Children & Young People section.

Our well-equipped hall is regularly used as a venue for church and local community events. Refreshments are served there every Sunday after the main service, with a popular Fellowship Lunch offered monthly. The hall is also available for bookings – see Church Hall for more information.

The Rector welcomes enquiries about baptisms, weddings and funerals. See the dedicated page for details.
