Edinburgh City Centre Churches Together (also known as the Together Trust) is an ecumenical grouping of three churches in the New Town: St Andrew's and St George's West (George Street), St John's Episcopal Church (corner of Princes St/Lothian Road) and St Cuthbert's (Lothian Road)

Working together on a number of projects, we aim to proclaim the Good News while engaging with those in the city centre on a daily basis.

These projects include JustFestivalWorkplace ChaplaincyChristian AidHomelessness and Civic Engagement through links with city centre organisations.


There a variety of things taking place across the Together Trust Churches over the Festival period. We are all incredibly pleased to be able to offer festival shows safely in our venues.

St John's Episcopal Church once again plays host to the Just Festival, who have an assortment of exhibitions, talks and other events. Throughout the festival and beyond, an immense art installation of 140,000 origami cranes will be occupying the high ceiling space. This vast number represents not only the victims of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima in 1945 but the lives lost to the COVID-19 pandemic in the UK, as well as the great acceleration of species extinction through the symbol of the endangered red-crowned crane. This is not all that is happing in St John's, and if you are interested in the Just Festival, you can find the Full Programme online HERE.

The Parish Church of St Cuthbert is playing host to a varied assortment of musicians throughout the Fringe. Old friends like Anne-Isobel Meyer, and other wonderful musicians who are performing here for the first time, like Ciara Harvie. For the full list of performances, please look HERE.

In St Andrew's and St George's West Church, there is a broad selection of musical entertainment, ranging from organ and guitar recitals to a celebration of the 250th anniversary of the birth of Sir Walter Scott. All of the events at here can be found on the website HERE.


 

Creative Together is a group of people, from Edinburgh city centre churches in the Together Trust, who enjoy crafts.  They recognised that their creative skills could be used to raise money for good causes.  Initially Christian Aid was the focus, but later funds have also been raised for Marie Curie, Motor Neuron Disease and Edinburgh Direct Aid.
