“May the glory of God and the salvation of souls be your chief – your only end”

About Us

Reaching out in love with the gospel message to the people of Edinburgh and visitors to Scotland’s capital city.

We are directly involved in evangelistic outreach and aim to also be a catalyst for individuals and churches to engage in mission, endeavouring to show the love of God through sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, introducing people to a personal saviour, and making disciples.

Vision

Edinburgh City Mission exists to serve the Church of Jesus Christ by pioneering gospel outreach in our city, resourcing and encouraging local churches to be missional and to equip individuals to be bold witnesses to the life transforming good news of Jesus Christ.

Mission History & Statement of Faith

Edinburgh City Mission was established in 1832 by David Nasmith, 6 years after he founded the first City Mission in Glasgow.

Edinburgh City Mission looks very different today than it did in 1832, gone are the missionaries to the hansom cab drivers but the ethos of David Nasmith is with us today:

“May the glory of God and the salvation of souls be your chief – your only end”
