Same-sex marriage

At St Columba’s by the Castle we celebrate the historic decision of the Scottish Episcopal Church to allow same-sex marriages to be conducted by those clergy, and in those churches, wishing to do so.  While we are mindful of the hurt some may feel at this decision, we believe that God affirms and delights in all people, including those who find themselves blessed within a life-giving relationship of love and faithfulness.  The clergy at St Columba’s are now licensed to conduct all marriages equally and we welcome enquiries from both same-sex and opposite-sex couples.
