Edinburgh City Mission is led by our CEO, Duncan Cuthill.

Duncan was previously Director of Ministries for London City Mission for 12 years.

Mission Strengtheners practically support mission in local churches, including our church-based Foodbank+ network, loving and befriending people who are referred to the Foodbanks+ by welcoming them, offering one-to-one meetings and running support groups.

As a group of Christians from a variety of Churches, we and our Partner Churches believe in:

  • Following Jesus’ example of love and forgiveness
  • Showing care and concern for those who are experiencing hardship, severe difficulties, debt, violence, abuse, addictions, physical or mental illness, injustice or prejudice
  • Jesus’ sacrificial death on the cross, as the ultimate expression of love
  • Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, giving us hope beyond the grave
  • The promise of a new, better life through faith in Him
  • God’s desire to be in a loving, secure and faithful relationship with everyone who seeks Him

City Mission Movement

History

The City Mission in Edinburgh 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 to how it did in 1832, but the ethos of David Nasmith remains.

 

Come back soon to read a little bit more about our history.
