Welcome to 21by21.org.
On Easter Sunday 2017, the Sunday Herald newspaper boldly declared “Christianity is in Crisis in Scotland” on the front page. The article was based on research that had been diligently carried out on behalf of Scottish churches.
They were right.
Since 2002 one third of the Church in Scotland has disappeared. On average 10 churches in our nation have closed every month. Nearly half of the Church is over 65.
It’s time to act.
Our desire is to play our part in writing a new future for the Church in Scotland. Alongside the many fantastic movements and initiatives in our nation, we want to step up and do something useful.
Maybe God is calling you to play your part? Or perhaps he is asking you to join with us. Either way we’re praying for a kind of revolution, a turn of events so dramatic and significant that only God can be the explanation.
