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.

This week for All Out Sunday we would love for you to find ways to link in to Refugee week. We've come up with three ideas for what you could get up to as a community: 

Fundraise: You could hold a fundraising event for a charity working with refugees internationally. Why not join up with another Community at Central if that helps make this possible? The two charities we recommend you support are the BMS Ukraine Appeal as one of our main partners, and also Edinburgh City Mission’s Salaam refugee ministry.

Support: You could help the brilliant Sanctuary Community at Central next Sunday as they use the auditorium space to meet with refugees in the city. If your Community wants to be involved, get in touch with Tricia and she will be able to tell you what would be most helpful!

Watch: You could invite pals to a film night around the Refugee Crisis and open it up for conversation at the end. There are various lists online of really great eye-opening and educational films to watch, including some recent Oscar winners! (You can find a list of suggested films linked on our Facebook)
Being an intern at Central is an exciting opportunity to explore and practice your leadership gifting! One of our current interns, Bethan has shared why she chose to do an internship...

"I decided to do a worship internship at Central as I really wasn't sure what to do after school. I didn't want to rush into anything and wanted to explore what my future might look like. Interning at Central has given me the chance to do this. I have had lots of opportunities to lead and have been pushed in areas I hadn't previously imagined growing in. This year has given me the space to explore and challenge my faith. One of the things I've especially loved has been getting to know and work alongside a great bunch of people in a team that has a proper family feel." 

Application closing date: 30th June.

Could you be our new Kids & Families worker? 

At Central we love and value families and children and want them to grow as disciples and be at the heart of all we do. We want to see our kids and families love and serve Jesus in a fun, energetic and loving church family. This appointment will develop the programme to help our kids and families be disciples who are having an adventure with Jesus, are at the heart of our church family and serving our city with their God-given gifts and talents.

Applications deadline is 13 July at 5pm. Interviews will be held week beginning 18 July.
