Welcome to the Augustine United Church website.

We are an active, inclusive Christian community based in the heart of Edinburgh city centre. At AUC we celebrate the Christian Story, welcome and affirm people of all races, genders, sexualities, ages, faiths and abilities and work to promote justice and wellbeing locally and globally. We come together to worship and to make a difference.

Sunday Worship

Physical worship has returned to the building and the next service will take place on Sunday 11th July.

There are a limited number of seats available and everyone who attends is advised to book a place to avoid disappointment. Please email Rachel on centre.manager@augustine.org.uk to do so.

Our Sunday Worship will also continue to be streamed live from the church on Zoom and Facebook from 10:50 am. For more information about how to access our services online please go to the Sunday Worship page.
