    The Church of St John the Evangelist is a Scottish Episcopal church in the centre of Edinburgh, Scotland. It is sited at the west end of Princes Street, and is protected as a category A listed building. It was dedicated as St John's Chapel on Maundy Thursday 1818 with construction having begun in 1816. It was designed by the architect William Burn.
    The sanctuary and chancel were built in 1879-82 by John Dick Peddie and Norman Boyd Kinnear. The vestry and Hall in 1915 to 1916 by John Dick Peddie and Forbes Smith.
    St John's holds daily services and is unique in that it is the last church in Scotland to hold the weekly service of Matins. The plaster ceiling vault is derived from that found in the Henry VII Lady Chapel in Westminster Abbey.
    The morning chapel was furnished by Walker Todd in 1935.
