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

Worship at AUC is returning to the building! We’ll be holding our first physical worship service on Sunday 1st November at 11am. There are a limited number of seats available and everyone who attends will need to book a place. The service in the building will also be streamed live to folk watching at home by Zoom and Facebook as usual. Details on how to take part both in person and online can be found on the Sunday Worship page.

AUC Virtual Tour

We present a short video tour of the building. Walk inside from George IV Bridge to our sanctuary and right down to the exit on Merchant Street. Discover how the building reflects our roots in the ‘Radical’ Scottish Reformation and our evolving values over almost 160 years.


Experience our new herstory pilgrimage. Walk the streets around George IV Bridge. Reflect on the lives of some of the city’s most notable and inspiring women, and tell us about your experience.

An invitation to make a Mid-week pause... Take a few moments to read and reflect on this seedling thought from Jesuit Antony de Mello. May it awaken us to God's Realm.
