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 will take place on the first and third Sundays of the month. Our next service is on Sunday 3rd October.

You no longer need to book a place in order to attend worship so please just arrive at the church shortly before 11am and a door steward will take your contact details on the door. Communion will be offered at our services but if you are more comfortable bringing your own bread and juice please do so. Chairs will still be generously spaced and face coverings still need to be worn at all times while in the building.

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.
