The Home of Richmond's Hope

Other Links

After worshipping together for nearly a year, we were delighted to unite formally with Bristo Memorial Church in November 2022.  Both congregations agreed that the new church would be called Richmond Craigmillar Church.

Our new united church is part of a ‘cluster’ with two other Church of Scotland churches nearby, Duddingston Kirk and St. Martin’s, Bingham.

Bristo Memorial Church previously hosted a foodbank. This has now moved to the Thistle Foundation. 

St Teresa’s Roman Catholic Church

We also have excellent relations with St Teresa’s, just across Niddrie Mains Road, and sometimes share worship with them, or join together for Lent groups.
