Welcome to the website of Bristo Baptist Church in Edinburgh, Scotland. We are the second oldest Baptist Church in Scotland (founded 1765).

However, being old and long established does not mean that we are not moving with the times. We have lively modern worship celebrations and solidly Biblical all-age education on Sundays, and we meet in home groups and for prayer during the week.

We are bound together by the love of God and move together in the power of the Holy Spirit. You will be assured of a warm welcome if you come and join us in worship, whether you are just visiting the city or have come to stay for a longer period to work or study.

Now that you have visited our website, why not come and see for yourself? We pray that you will be blessed by what you read on this site.
