P1010038Global Focus

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
    And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God.

(Micah 6:8 NIV)

 

As approaches to Global Mission are changing we are introducing a thematic approach focusing on different areas of need and interest. We will therefore be developing a number of new initiatives with several organisations that fulfil these themes.

In addition we will continue to support our existing mission partners who are very much part of the church family. They have been commissioned by the church and are serving Christ in a variety of ways and in many different parts of the world from Scotland, Europe and the Middle East to Africa and Asia. We support them in prayer, through encouragement, and financially.

The latest edition of the Bite-Size Globetrotter Winter 2016 provides news from IJM and Tearfund partnership programmes and also introducing "Exploring Edinburgh", an initiative to get to know Syrian families and other families who are new to the city.

In response to the Refugee Crisis read our page which gives some ideas of what we can do.
Middle East Workshop- presentations, videos and reflections from a workshop with Malcolm and Carrie, and Mike Parker.
