The Free Church is passionate about seeing local churches motivated and equipped for outreach.

As well as recommending resources, we have an Evangelism Support Group that encourages outreach projects and distributes small grants to mission-minded work.

The grants help with costs for resources, and have been used imaginatively by many of our churches to touch the lives of hundreds of people.

More importantly, the ESG team is also there to offer prayerful support to congregations as they seek to reach out to local people with the Gospel.

Since 2005, almost half of the Free Church of Scotland’s congregations have benefited from small grants from the ESG Fund.

The ESG team is made up of representatives from every Presbytery, and has been in existence since 2005 – replacing the old highways and byways committee.

Priority will be given to first-time applicants as well as new and innovative outreach ideas.
