What sort of place do you want Edinburgh to be? We want to see people flourishing, communities thriving, the church mobilised and God glorified.

Jesus was a pioneer – he is pioneering our salvation.


We focus on self-sacrificial love for others.


Our commitment for generosity flows from that shown by God.


God is one and so are we in the church.


God is just. We trust that he will bring justice to the nations.
