tn2Compassion for others and sharing the good news about Jesus are at the heart of our vision and values – and that commits us to mission.

And for us mission means action – using our time,  money, gifts and skills to make a positive difference here and around the world.

We have a number of mission initiatives in our own locality – Mini’s, Alpha, Guest Sunday’s, Friday evening youth activities, and involvement in various local community activities.    In addition we are involved in a number of partnerships and projects here in Edinburgh, around the UK, and in other parts of the world, notably in Kenya, Pakistan, and Rwanda.

Our connection with Rwanda is a relational one. We are supporting the vision of Pastor Paul Ndahigwa who is Depute Leader of the Living Church in Rwanda, and in particular the 22 churches he has planted in the north east of the country. Presently we are visiting these churches in February and taking a small team to co-host a conference in July. The primary support is through bible teaching and Holy Spirit ministry.

Some of our partners are former members of our church community, and increasingly we are sending out teams of people to get hands-on experience of the projects we’re involved with, to learn, to share, to teach and to pray.

The links in the right hand side bar reveal where we are making a difference – and there are opportunities to get involved yourself, particularly with the Care Van & Shelter, the Hope weekends and our Community activities.

    Rwanda Mission Trip Feedback Evening

     We had a fantastic time on our Rwanda Mission Trip!  (thank you for all your prayers)   I think as a team we all carried a high degree of anticipation of what God might do and we were not disappointed! The Pastors Conference ran from the Thursday through to the Saturday, and our overall theme was Presence, Passion, Purpose and Power and all of that was expressed and experienced over these 3 days. Numbers grew as the conference developed. READ MORE »
