What is 20schemes?
At 20schemes, the desire is to see Scotland’s housing schemes transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ through the revitalisation and planting of gospel-preaching churches, ultimately led by a future generation of indigenous church leaders. They believe that building healthy, gospel preaching churches in Scotland’s poorest communities will bring true renewal to Scotland’s schemes.
The schemes are strong and vibrant Scottish communities with a rich history, but are often hit hard by complex social problems. They also happen to be the places least likely to have a gospel church or indigenous Christians.
For such a little nation, Scotland has a rich gospel heritage. However, what once was known as ‘the land of the Book’ is no longer. Today, biblical Christianity has been sidelined in Scotland. Only 2.5% of Scots would call themselves Evangelical Christians, and in Scotland’s poorest communities, the housing schemes, the picture is even bleaker!
How is Parkview involved?
