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.

We are a congregation of the United Reformed Church. We are an Aligned Organization with the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) and work in partnership with MCC to offer our joint LGBTQI+ ministry called ‘Our Tribe’. We share in an ecumenical covenant with Greyfriars Kirk and St Columba’s-by-the-Castle SEC.

Sunday Worship

Our Sunday Worship takes place at 11 am every Sunday online and in-building and everyone is welcome to share in it. For more information about our services and how to access them online please go to the Sunday Worship page.

Pride Month at AUC

It is Pride month and we will be celebrating Pride in Edinburgh on Saturday 22nd June and Sunday 23rd June.

Saturday 22nd June – Pre Pride March Gathering – 10am to 11.30am

We will gather at Augustine for Coffee and Cake with a short time of blessing before we set off for the March. Come along to collect a “God Loves All” placard. We will leave AUC to go to the start of the March together at 11.30am.

Pride March – 12.15am

We will be joining the March with our “God Loves All” placards at the assembly point outside the Scottish Parliament. The March sets off at 1pm and will head up the Royal Mile, along George IV Bridge (past AUC) to the Pride Fair at Edinburgh University.

AUC on the step – 1.30pm

There will be a gathering of folks on the step outside AUC to cheer the March as it goes by. Join this gathering if you’d rather not be on the March but want to show your support. The more the better!!

Pride fair – 2pm onwards

We will have a stall at the Pride Fair. Come along and say hello. Help us to share the message of inclusive Church for all.

Sunday 23rd June – Pride Service – 11am

Our Sunday worship service will include many LGBTQI+ voices. Rev Kai Millar from Northern Lights MCC, Newcastle will be our Preacher. Followed by Pride Coffee and Cake.

We look forward to you joining us. All are welcome. Family Friends and Allies, please join us to show your support for the LGBTQI+ community.

Best wishes and Happy Pride
