25 years!

Edinburgh, Tue 04 October, 2022

Origin Scotland is 25 years old this year.

Over the last quarter century, Origin has staged more than 300 events for over 200,000 people in the UK, in South Africa and online.

"... he was really inspired and challenged by what he heard. He asked Jesus into his life last night."

Origin Scotland is 100% donor-funded. We are not supported by any churches or organisations. We have no wealthy underwriters. We have no salaried staff. Some of our staff live on support they must raise themselves. We rely on the generosity of Godís people to keep the doors open.

This week we launch our 25 for 25 partnership campaign.

Notice the gap in the clockwise graph of events above? That's the gap between the launch of this campaign and the start of 2025. We are urgently seeking partners to help us keep going. Above all we value your prayers for the work. If you would like to be added to our email prayer list, let us know and we will add you.

"[Our 30-something seniors in the care centre] are still living off the joy experienced and praising God in their own rooms from the words in the programmes."

If you would like to partner with us financially, here are some ways you can do that.

We need to raise £5,000/month in regular support, and £20,000 in capital for new equipment and materials. This will enable us to properly fund our ministry programme in Scotland and South Africa, allow the purchase of equipment for our online ministry which has arisen since the lockdowns, and help to support our full time workers.

Monthly Contributions

The General, Staff and South Africa funds support our activities. We need 100 new partners. Could you fill one of the circles? Every bit helps. £10/month works towards meeting the need as well.

One-off Donations

Responding to the international impact of the online events during lockdowns, and the creativity of people in our congregations, we want to develop the video side of our ministry. We need your help to buy some second-hand gear and upgrade our IT. Each square represents £25. How many could you help us fill?

Join us to become a partner in this ministry!

We look forward to partnering with you to serve God in Scotland and further abroad in the coming years!

Thank you for your support, generosity and partnership, and huge thank you to our existing partners who have supported us for so many years.

God is good!
