The church has strong links with a number of missionaries and Christian organisations, and sends gifts monthly. Normally these have largely come from offerings at the 10am service, but at present they are taken from church funds. Those we have supported financially during 2021 are:
- Heber & Fiona Gallitto (Argentina)
- Richard & Elaine Leakey (YWAM, Switzerland)
- Jim Burnett (Argentina)
- Derek & Heidi (Middle East)
- Michael (Far East)
- Andrea Smith (Lebanon)
- Ferrywell Youth Project
- Edinburgh Christian Unions
- Golgota Mission (Romania)
- Edinburgh & District Missionary Home
We have a mission update at least once a month at our Sunday services and also provide updates in our weekly emails and monthly newsletters. If you would like more information on any of the missionaries of organisations we support, please let me know.
After a good number of years as our primary contact with missionaries and updating us in the monthly newsletters, Sheila MacLeod has stepped back from this role. We’re very grateful to Sheila for her faithful service. The elders are currently considering how we can best encourage missionary awareness and support in the church, and Sheila has provided her thoughts on this.
