We are a supra-denominational church.

The ecumenical nature of the church stems from the fact that we come from different churches. At the beginning we were faced the choice whether we wanted to work together or try to play denominational divisions to form a much smaller denominational groups. We chose the first solution and surprisingly, we are able to every day do something that in Poland is successful only occasionally and not always - we create one church where every Sunday Anglican, Baptist, Catholic, Lutheran, Pentecostal and others are standing together and as individuals having a personal relationship with God love Him as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. But this is not a church whose doctrine would be so blurry that include everything and everyone. We have a clear profession of faith which defines our beliefs. But consciously we focus on the central truths of the Bible discussing the rest of the Scriptures in a spirit of respect and kindness. Therefore, in the name of our church, there is no adjective defining religious affiliation, and only Polish-language character of the community and its place - Edinburgh.

Our church is a place where Poles can speak our native language on deeper topics, pray and participate in the service.

You are cordially invited.

Just come and see and see for yourself.
