South Leith Parish Church stands just beyond Kirkgate Shopping Centre in Lieth, Edinburgh, close to Shore. This is an active church community with numerous clubs and social events as well as mid-week fellowship groups.

The first church building on the site dates back to a chapel dedicated to Mary in built around 1483, which was seriously damaged by English warships bombarding Leith in the 1560's. The building was greatly restored between 1847 and 1848, giving the current Gothic building. It has become a minor tourist attraction due to the beautiful Hammerbeam roof seen inside. The east end of the church has a beautiful stained glass window flanked by organ pipes.
