The Presbytery of Edinburgh, Church of Scotland and City of Edinburgh Methodists are delighted to make msm available locally. We believe it will be a significant resource for building the Kingdom of God in this area.
Individuals are most welcome, but we particularly hope that small groups from a church or fresh expression will come as this will deepen the impact of the course.
The course leaders are Caroline Lockerbie, Lou Davis, Norman Smith and Fiona Tweedie. Course teachers include Steve Hollinghurst, Olive Drane, John Drane, Alan McWilliam, Fiona Tweedie, Lou Davis, Norman Smith and Doug Gay.

Edinburgh Presbytery are delighted to be offering this course to the local church. Our congregations are active in a wide range of contexts where giving people the right tools to engage with their community and see it through missional eyes is essential. We are very much looking forward to this course strengthening our congregations over the coming year.
Rev Dr George Whyte, Presbytery Clerk
Mission Resourcing have a role to help congregations develop the tools needed to be effective at a local level. We source a wide range of training expertise so that congregations who do not have these tools can develop them. We are very excited about msm and the difference it can potentially make to Christians within the Edinburgh area.
Rev Norman Smith, Mission Resourcing Convener
