At Abbeyhill we have a wonderful heritage of being involved in overseas mission.  We have great news to share about who Jesus is, what he has done for us and how he invites us to respond to him. 


We believe that it is important to share this good news with those around us: in our families, with our friends, colleagues and our local community. But we also believe it is important to share the good news of Jesus with those in other countries.    So it is a great privilege to do this by sending and supporting different folks from our fellowship or known to us who are active in various parts of the world.  Here are a few organisations we support.


Local support

The Polish Speaking Church in Edinburgh
We are delighted to share our premises with our brothers and sisters from Poland. The Polish Speaking Church in Edinburgh use our premises for Worship on Sunday afternoons and at other times throughout the week for various activities including Bible Study etc. Find their Facebook page here.

Bethany Christian Trust
Bethany Christian Trust supports 4,000 homeless and vulnerable people every year in Scotland to find, equip and maintain a home within their local community. Abbeyhill supports Bethany by providing a venue for their Care Shelter several times each year. Visit bethanychristiantrust.com for more info.

Calton Club
The Calton Club is a weekly Dementia Club run by Calton Welfare Services which meets in our premises on Thursdays.

Try Praying
We participate in the Try Praying Project. This initiative is for people who are not religious and don't go to church but might want to try praying.
