St. Giles’ Cathedral: Mother Church of Presbyterianism
St. Giles’ Cathedral, The High Kirk of Edinburgh, has played a central role in the history of Scotland, sitting as it does on the High Street in the heart of the medieval Old Town of Edinburgh. Not least is its role in the Scottish Reformation, which gave birth to Presbyterian Church government. The talk will offer a historic review of the church, founded in 1124, reflect on its role in Scottish society and look to the future of ministry in the centre of Scotland’s capital city.
