Welcome to North Leith Parish Church

Welcome to NLPCNorth Leith Parish Church is part of the Church of Scotland and serves an area 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 the Leith Churches Together (the local ecumenical fellowship) and the Leith Churches Forum.

In our Parish, we seek to bring the good news and care of Christ to all.  Some of the ways we seek to do this are through worship, FoodBank, Care Van, and the winter Night Shelter.  Much of this is done in partnership with other churches and organisations.

Sunday Worship

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