20 Schemes works within areas of deprivation in Scotland with the aim of seeing social housing schemes transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. They are working to recruit, train, support and send church planters, outreach workers, ministry apprentices and short-term interns to work as part of church planting teams within Scotland’s housing schemes.
20 Scheme’s long term desire is to see Scotland’s housing schemes transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ through the revitalisation and planting of gospel-preaching churches, ultimately led by a future generation of indigenous church leaders. To that end they plan to initiate a church planting and revitalisation effort by recruiting, training, supporting and sending church planters, female outreach workers, ministry apprentices, and short-term interns to work part of church planting teams within Scotland’s housing schemes. 20 Scheme’s believes that building healthy, gospel-preaching churches in Scotland’s poorest communities will bring true, sustainable, and long-term renewal to Scotland’s schemes.
20 Schemes is currently working in Niddrie (Edinburgh), Barlanark (Glasgow), Lochee (Dundee) and Gracemount (Edinburgh)
