20 Schemes

The highlight of my time in Edinburgh was the time I spent with Niddrie Community Church which is based in a scheme on the edge of Edinburgh. A ‘scheme’ is the Scottish term for a council estate or housing project. Niddrie is a needy place, but the church there, led by Mez McConnell, is doing great things and seeing amazing fruit.

During the conference Mez and his team launched ‘20 Schemes‘ – an ambitious initiative to recruit teams to plant twenty churches in twenty Scottish schemes – needy areas with no gospel witness.

You can read Mez’s won story in his book Is There Anybody Out There: A Journey from Despair to Hope available from amazon.com and amazon.co.uk.

My latest book, Unreached, which was written with the Reaching the Unreached network is about reaching these kind of areas. It’s available from amazon.com and amazon.co.uk.
