The redecoration and relighting has “Transformed one of Edinburgh’s least interesting churches into one of its most beautiful”. The bold use of red with a stencilled decoration of golden keys in a diamond pattern, with a ‘daisy chain’ border, has given back the richness the building needed.

Painting the window tracery has made the interior lighter than it was before, as well as allowing the colours to glow. The use of the Practice’s signature ‘chandeliers’ delicately lights the entire space.

What attracts people to St Peter’s? Apart from our beautifully restored Victorian building, we have a first-rate choir under the leadership of our Director of Music, Rupert Forbes. The choir is always on the lookout for new members, so if you enjoy singing, why not look at our music page and come along to a practice?
