What's on

Communities across Edinburgh, serving the city

God has changed each of our lives in an incredible way. We’d love to see the same transformation in the lives of our friends and in our city. We do this through communities, formed around a common focus, desiring to be like and love like Jesus.

More about Communities

We gather on Sundays

We gather three times on a Sunday to hang out and spend time worshipping God, reading the bible, listening to a talk and sharing some stories together. Come and join us.

Instagram post 2203717379561360204_974367030 Esther was enslaved as a little girl. She was born in a small village but needed to move out of her parents’ home to be able to go to school. At the age of 7, she was trafficked to a remote island on Lake Volta in ­Ghana by someone that her family, who lived in poverty, thought they could trust. For ten years she was forced to work long days in the household, sometimes going to the lake to fish herself even though she didn’t know how to swim. She was brutally beaten and abused by her slave owner’s family and became ­dangerously malnourished. She has scars in her arms and legs from preparing and processing the fish. 
Slavery is a very complex issue, entangled with high levels of poverty, inequality and need. Ten million children are in slavery around the world today - twenty times the population of Edinburgh. It is not an easy problem solve, but Esther’s story changed when the local authorities, partnering with International Justice Mission rescued her. 
As part of our Just Christmas Campaign this year, we want to support IJM - your gifts will send rescue to children trapped right now. You will enable IJM teams to find children in slavery and work with police to rescue them. You can sed your gift tomorrow at our Sunday gathering or by clicking here
