Mission Trip Dates: June 29 – August 6 — Work/Evangelism
From the airport you will bus three hours across the Scottish countryside to the Windmill Christian Centre, in Arbroath, that sits on a hill overlooking the North Sea. Here you will work alongside the staff who run this retreat center, hosting groups from all over Europe, as they continue to renovate the 400–500 year-old building.
Jobs that may be done include repointing the security walls, landscaping and painting. The team will also have the opportunity to do evangelistic meetings with the youth in the surrounding area, putting their music, puppet and drama training to good use.
You will have an opportunity to visit the Arbroath Abbey, begun by King William the Lion in 1178 for Benedictine monks.The Abbey is famous in Scottish history for its association with the Declaration of Arbroath, in which the Scottish nobles swore their independence from England. During your project, you will travel to Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, to shop along the Royal Mile and visit Edinburgh Castle, home of the Scottish Crown Jewels.
