Jewish mission

The Apostle Paul says in Romans 1:16 that the Gospel is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes, to the Jew first then the Gentile.

The Free Church supports the outreach work of Christian Witness to Israel (CWI), which seeks to share the Good News of Christ with Jews who do not believe Jesus was the Messiah.

CWI is a UK-based interdenominational evangelistic society that is committed to sharing the good news of Jesus the Messiah with Jewish people.

Founded as an interdenominational body in 1842, the society was strongly supported by Scottish Presbyterians who the following year formed the Free Church. Robert Murray McCheyne took part in the inaugural meeting.

In 1921, the Free Church made a fresh commitment to “Jewish Mission” by channelling resources into the organisation.

Since that time, the Free Church has made a significant contribution to CWI, by way of missionaries, and also financial and prayer support.

One of our ministers, Rev Ruairidh Maclean, works for CWI as its Scottish representative.

Partick Free Church minister Rev Alex Cowie has served on the CWI council for many years, including holding the position of Chairman. Dick Haffenden, a Free Church elder, is the longest serving Council member, and Jan Campbell is another Council member who has given a massive amount of time and expertise to modernising the governance of CWI.
