Holy Corner lies between the areas
of Bruntsfield and Morningside and is the informal
name given to the area where the junctions of Morningside
Road, Colinton Road and Chamberlain Road meet. As
there is a church on each of the corners. although
two of them are set back slightly.)
Church Hill is the small area to
the south and includes the Church Hill Theatre, formerly
Morningside Free Church.
Beyond is Morningside, with the former parish church
(now part of Napier University)
The churches of Holy Corner are:
Christ Church (Scottish Episcopal Church), Morningside
United (Church of Scotland and United Reformed Church)
and Morningside Baptist Church (Baptist Church).
The latter moved some of its Sunday services to the
former Braid Church (Church of Scotland) building
further south in Morningside in 2006, to cope with
increased space requirements, but intends to keep
the Holy Corner building.
The fourth of the churches has
been turned into the Eric Liddell centre (ELC).
