There are currently around 70 people who regularly attend the Priory Church, and many more who have an association on an occasional basis. On an average Sunday, there is a coffee and chat congregation of around 30 people, most of whom live in South Queensferry and the surrounding villages.

who leads the Priory Church?
We have one full time Minister: Rev Terry Harkin who works with a colleague, Rev Dr Iain MacRobert, and a team of people who carry responsibility for specific areas of church life. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the life and work of the church by becoming involved in a way that is right for them.

what is the Scottish Episcopal Church?
The history of the Scottish Episcopal Church is inextricably tied to Scotland's own story reaching back to the early days of Christianity in Scotland in the times of St Ninian (4th century) and St Columba (6th century). For a more detailed account of that story, click here. Today, the Scottish Episcopal Church is a part of the world-wide Anglican family of churches.

what are we about?
What we do is based on what we believe.


Some of the key beliefs that guide our actions and activities are as follows:

  • We believe that God cares deeply about people and wants to be known by us.
  • We believe that a relationship with God through Jesus Christ is the key to making sense of life.
  • We believe that many people have a 'virtual faith' - believing in something they may call God, but not knowing the reality in their everyday lives.
  • We believe that the Bible is God's word to the world, and can show us the way to a real relationship with God.
  • We believe that it is the responsibility of the church community to help people towards 'real faith'.
  • We believe that the church is a place for people who recognise their need for God and his forgiveness and where 'virtual faith' can become 'real'.
  • We believe that as faith becomes real it will be expressed in ways that benefit others in the church, in the community and in the wider world.

For these reasons, The Priory Church seeks to:
Celebrate and share the Good News of Jesus Christ
with our neighbours and beyond.
