Welcome to North Leith Parish Church

Welcome to NLPCNorth Leith Parish Church is part of the Church of Scotland and serves a Parish covering the western half of the Leith Docks, and along the foreshore to Newhaven with the housing up to a mile inland.

We are a member of Leith Churches Together (the local ecumenical forum) and the Leith Churches Forum (the local Church of Scotland grouping).

In our Parish, we seek to bring the good news and care of Christ to all.  We strive to do this not only through worship, prayer, and study but in working with a number of partner organisations.  Together we are involved in projects including the provision of FoodBank, Care Van, and Night Shelter.



Sunday Services

North Leith Parish Church extends a warm welcome to everyone, and especially any visitors, who join us at our services.  Our services are open to the believer and sceptic alike.

Additional services take place on the build up to both Christmas and Easter each year; details will be posted on this page nearer the time.

Evening services normally take place in the Session House (1a Madeira Place).

We hope that you will join us in the church hall after the morning service for tea/coffee.
