The church of St James the Less has a long history in Leith, stretching back over more than 300 years. It is one of only 33 Episcopalian congregations in Scotland which can trace its origins back to the Revolution of 1689. Today, St James is a small Christian community in the heart of Leith, with an active congregation of around 83 adults and 35 children. Every Sunday, folk of very different ages and backgrounds gather around the Lord’s Table to share bread and wine, just as others have for the last three centuries.
