A classic Church of Scotland parish church, dating back to 1823, in the old village of Stockbridge with small domed steeple.

James Milne's original U-plan gallery inside was enhanced in 1888 by Hardy & Wight's apse which was decorated with war memorial murals by the German artist Reinhardt Behrens in 1987. The murals depict the Lothian coastline at sunset and morning.

As well as a place of worship, with services on Sunday at 11.00am and Wednesday at 1pm Stockbridge Parish Church is also occasionally a venue for classical concerts.

The church houses a historic 2-manual organ by August Gern 1883 which was installed in 1995.

The church has a number of spaces available for hire.
