Liberton Kirk is situated in the south of Edinburgh overlooking the city and is home to a lively Church of Scotland congregation. The Kirk Centre and café play a large part in our connections with the local community.
The kirk is a semi-Gothic building designed by James Gillespie Graham. It was erected in 1815 to replace an older building on the site. We know from the Great Charter of Holyrood signed in 1143 that a chapel at Liberton was granted by King David I to the Abbey of Holyrood. Two Celtic crosses found in the area indicate a Christian establishment of some sort existed here even earlier.
You can find out more about the kirk’s history by visiting our website or by watching the video tour below of the kirk and kirkyard made especially for Doors Open Days. We hope you enjoy the virtual visit and we look forward to welcoming you in person soon.
