Bruntsfield St. Oswald's (St. Oswald's Centre)

"A vibrant hub for local primary school children, young people, families, the elderly and carers"

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

St. Oswald’s Church and Hall on Montpelier Park sit at the heart of many communities in and around the Bruntsfield area in the south of Edinburgh. The site was left vacant in February 2018 when Boroughmuir High School moved to its canal-side site. 

In August 2020, the City of Edinburgh Council approved the purchase of the church and hall by Bruntsfield St. Oswald's Ltd. (St. Oswald’s Centre) as part of a Community Asset Transfer. The purchase, which was completed in March 2021, was enabled by a grant from the Scottish Land Fund.

St. Oswald's Centre aims to create a vibrant, family-focused, community hub which will facilitate a wide range of clubs, classes and leisure opportunities for all local residents as well as wrap-around childcare and after-school activities for local children and young people.  It is hoped that St. Oswald's Centre will open in 2022 after a period of renovation and refurbishment.

  1. Pre- and after-school care
  2. Youth clubs and services
  3. Community groups (e.g. Scouts, yoga, dance, etc.)
  4. Complementary partnership with existing community hub at Eric Liddell Centre
  5. Learning and development opportunities for local primary school children
  6. Festivals, exhibitions, and other cultural productions.
