Xplorers Camp 2019

Xplorers Camp 2019

How brave are you? 

Would you drink a glass of liquid that may or may not be apple juice? 

Would you flip upside down on a bungee trampoline? 

Would you jump, fully clothed off a jetty into a lake? 

Would you crawl through a waist-deep, acrid bog? 

Would you face monsters and cavemen in the woods? 

Would you do whatever God asked you to do?

That’s what we did earlier this month when forty P5-P7 children headed up to Lendrick Muir for a weekend of fun and discovery with a team of leaders, an abundance of energy and some amazing talents.

KALEIDOSCOPE is expanding!

KALEIDOSCOPE is expanding!

Relationships. Friendships. Conversations.

It’s what it’s all about. Getting to know people both in and out of church. Sharing our lives and sharing our faith. As adults we can do that in house groups, at the school gate, in the work place. As teenagers it is all online (or so it seems to us adults!) but for children it is physical and tangible. They play and they chat, and they make friends. 

So while as adults we are encouraged to invite friends to the spirit café, alpha, beer and carols… and teenagers invite their peers to baptisms or Friday nights, what do we offer for the younger children?

The Turning

The Turning

I was amazed again by the levels of hunger for God as we went out on the streets of Edinburgh during this year’s Turning Mission.  During a period of only 8 hours we saw 138 people respond to the Good News.  One of the words that kept on coming up this year was linger.  We found people wanting to chat more, ask questions and share some of the issues they were facing in life.  We heard many amazing stories over the 8 days.

ESST Applications Open!

ESST Applications Open!

Applications are open for the Edinburgh School of Supernatural Transformation (ESST), our school of ministry here at St Mungo’s.

This year we are excited to announce we have made some significant changes to the structure of the school to make it more accessible than ever. We are responding to what we feel God is saying by inviting more people from close to home and across the nation to come and step into personal transformation.

Soul Survivor Scotland

Soul Survivor Scotland

Soul Survivor Scotland (20-25 July 2019)

Five days spent camping with over a thousand teenagers, far fewer showers, and a good spot of rain sounds like most people’s worst nightmare, and yet Soul Survivor has been one of the greatest experiences of my life, not just because of the crêpes and the hot chocolate mountains, but because of the amazing way that God came to meet us and strengthen our faith in Him.

The Turning

Last year St Mungo’s took part in the Turning Scotland here in Edinburgh.  The Turning’s vision is to see every believer across Scotland equipped to share the Gospel and trained to disciple those who respond.  Over 20 churches were involved, and at the end of the 8 days outreach, with a total of only 1 hour per day on the street, we saw 852 respond to the Gospel in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Family Fun Day 2019

Family Fun Day 2019

The weather might have been damp and grey but, once again, our Family Fun Day was full of life, laughter and colour! The rain stopped long enough to allow all outdoor activities to happen and there was plenty of time for grown-ups to chat while the children bounced, played, crafted and ran around
