About Us




Buccleuch (pronounced Bu-Clue) Free Church is a growing church situated very near to Edinburgh university in the vibrant Causewayside community.

Please feel welcome to come and spend some time with us. We are a diverse group of people from different ages, backgrounds and places in the world who are united in the belief that Jesus Christ is the saviour of the world and the greatest news you will ever hear.

We are always welcoming new people into our church family. So whoever you are, whatever your background is, and whether you have been to church before or not, we invite you to come and join us as we learn together about who Jesus is, what he has done for us, and what difference knowing Jesus makes for our lives.




James Ross has been our minister since 2016. He is married to Vickie and they have two children. In his spare time James enjoys reading books and drinking good coffee, cycling, but mostly hanging out with family and friends.
