Churches and Chaplains

By SPP Reporter

The Edinburgh Service Community is supported by a team of Army Chaplains, who are here to respond to requests for assistance and guidance.

We have good relationships with local civilian churches, and we encourage everyone to attend the local church of their choice. There are a wide variety of churches of all the major denominations across the Edinburgh Garrison area and details of the nearest ones can be easily found online. If you need help with this, please contact your unit chaplain.

Chaplains are able to give advice with Blessings and Baptisms, Marriages and Renewal of Vows, and Funeral and Thanksgiving Services. It is always better to contact the Padre prior to confirming dates and venues for such events.

The Army Chaplains minister to those of all faiths and none, so please also feel free to contact them if you wish to find out about other religions and faith/non-faith groups that are present in the Edinburgh Garrison area.

Indeed, if you have any questions, your unit Chaplain will be happy to help.
