SCOTLAND Youth Centre 1903
DATES OF INVOLVEMENT: December 14, 2019 – January 25, 2020
Escape the summer heat and travel to a land of snow-topped hills, lakes and lush green meadows. While Christianity has a rich history in Scotland, less than 2% of young people are actively involved in faith today. Unless something changes, the church will soon be only history in this nation. You can be a part of that change. After your training at Boot Camp in Tewantin, QLD, you will fly from Brisbane International Airport to Abu Dhabi, then on to Edinburgh, the nation’s capital. From here, you will travel to Arbroath, where you will be lodged at the Windmill Christian Centre. Your team will be involved in renovating this centre during the week. Here, young believers learn to study and teach from their Bibles, as well as be trained in evangelism and leadership. The centre provides a space for other local charities to work to influence their community for God’s glory. On the weekends, you will partner with a local house church to reach the lost and witness to the full life found in Christ. With a mental health crisis, and the use of drugs and alcohol on the rise, young people in the streets of Scotland are lost and searching: you will bring the much needed hope of the Good News through dramas and outreach presentations. During your stay, the brave of heart may have opportunity to sample haggis – a traditional savoury dish made with sheep’s pluck, onions, oatmeal and spices, cooked up in an animal’s stomach. You may also get to see Glamis Castle featured in Shakespeare’s play Macbeth, listen to bagpipes or purchase kilts and tartans. Scotland needs young people who will share their faith and show what “life to the full” looks like. Will you live out your faith this summer?
