North Leith Parish Church (Church of Scotland)

North Leith Parish Church is in Madeira Street and serves an area which includes the western half of the Leith Docks and extends along the shore to Newhaven, and a mile inland.  In our Parish, we seek to bring the good news and care of Christ to all.

We host a number of activities: a long-established parent and toddler group which welcomes all comers, Brownies, badminton, a lunch club and fellowship or prayer groups.  Besides our church and main hall, we have a Session House in Madeira Place, which we use as a chapel for smaller or more informal services.

Our minister is Rev. Alex McAspurren, who came to us with his wife Louise in March 2011.

Alex and Louise

Alex came to us from Corby, in Northamptonshire, but was already known to many of us as he and Louise had previously spent time in Leith.

Sunday services: 11.00am (evening services take place during the run up to Christmas and Easter – see website for details)
