We seek to be involved in the life of the community and the world through various
ministries. Through Christian Aid, the official relief and development agency of
the Church of Scotland, we participate in various campaigns against poverty and trade
There is so much need in Africa
In Partnership with the Saughtonhall United Reform Church and the Church of the Good
Shepherd Episcopal Church through Murrayfield Churches Together we have a long tradition
of supporting Christian Aid. During Christian Aid Week we have a house to house collection
in as many streets as possible in our area. At the same time we also have a joint
ecumenical service followed by a fundraising lunch with a growing lively participation
of young families. The lunch is a simple affair to remind us of the plight of the
people Christian Aid is trying to help.
Recently we have had extra annual fundraising events – ceilidhs, quizzes, tea parties
– and whenever there is an emergency appeal, as in the ongoing cu#ivil war in Syria
- the congregation is given an opportunity to give via Christian Aid.
In spite of the present financial climate we are encouraged that our collections,
especially during Christian Aid Week, have been maintained. We have a small organising
committee with representatives from the three partner churches. We should welcome
help and participation from anybody who is interested (contact Liz Sudlow Tel No.
