Polwarth Parish Church in the City of Edinburgh
Learning in the Light of Knowledge, Moving in the Love of God


Polwarth’s Story

Polwarth is a safe place
for all people to worship
regardless of age, race, creed, cultural
background or sexual orientation.

But we do more than worship: we provide
a community location
enhancement to the environment
a means to overcome stress and loss.

We do more than worship: we care
about people in all stages and conditions of life
about poverty and homelessness
about fairness and justice.

The church is in a beautiful location alongside the Union Canal near Harrison Park and has been ‘snapped’ in all weathers and all seasons - flickr photos.
