Access Course:

Generation 19 is an initiative of Generation, the mission arm of the Free Church. They have picked one period of time, 1st to 10th September, and have invited local congregations to get involved in a specific mission activity and will publicise it for the prayer support of the wider church.
The Kirk Session have decided to reach out to some of the new houses in the Sandwick area during this week of mission. Our aim is to give a welcome pack from the church to each household in Mackenzie Park as a means of blessing our community with the gospel.  We would value your prayers for every aspect of this outreach and for God’s guidance and blessing on it.  The specific dates will be given closer to the time. Thank you.
