The MIssion Board
A HEALTHY GOSPEL CHURCH FOR EVERY COMMUNITY IN SCOTLAND
The Mission Board is the Board with the widest remit in the Church, with responsibility for everything from facilitating the planting of 30 churches by 2030 to assisting congregations as they seek to establish healthy, sustainable ministry in existing churches.
The Board works closely with local congregations, Presbyteries and other Boards as it strives towards the vision of having a healthy gospel church for every community in Scotland. Such a church evangelises well, disciples well and equips its people well, with a heart for the body of Christ and the proclamation of His saving work at both a local and a global level.
The Board’s work is divided into four sub-committees.

In these podcasts, we sit down with guests from different backgrounds to discuss mission, evangelism, good practice and other Gospel issues in Scotland and further afield.
Our previous Generation Podcast videos can be found here.
The Mission Board of the Free Church of Scotland aims to equip this generation and the next to follow Jesus. As Christians, and as a church, we want to grow as disciples and long to make more disciples of Jesus.
Discipleship is a lifelong process, so we aim to equip the whole church, from the youngest to the oldest, to live lives of worship, witness and service.
Below are links to some of the events we organise and support throughout the year.
The “Generation” initiative will primarily focus on planting 30 new churches by the year 2030 while helping to revitalise struggling congregations.
This vision is facilitated through creating a network of plants, recruiting, training and coaching planters, and raising money for this valuable work. You can find out more about the work of Church Planting, and can find links to donate to this work, here.
