Are you interested in your church or ministry pursuing a partnership with 20schemes?
On a 20schemes Vision Trip, you’ll see how 20schemes is working to revitalise and plant gospel-centred churches in Scotland’s poorest communities.
- Meet our team
- Visit our church planting sites
- Hear testimonies from those who are being reached
- Consider with us how best your church could be involved in this work.
Vision trips are specifically for church/ministry leaders. Each trip is limited to 8 people, with a maximum of 4 people representing one church/ministry. Limiting numbers helps to best facilitate a relationship between us and your church or ministry.
Once you’ve been approved to attend, the cost is £550 (UK) or $700 US per person. Attendees will make their own travel arrangements to arrive in Edinburgh, Scotland, before noon (UK time) on day one of the trip. Airport pick-up, all food, and accommodation are organised for you and included in the fee above.

WORK WITH US
We need committed godly people to come and work for us at 20schemes. Is God calling you to plant a church in an area that needs to hear the good news? Are you passionate about sharing the gospel with others? Maybe your gift is ministering to women?
Whether short or long-term, we need you to serve God in the mission field – the schemes of Scotland.

At 20schemes we believe that the poorest communities of Scotland need healthy local churches. However, in order to reach these needy communities and establish healthy churches, we need mature Christians to move into areas of deprivation. People will not be won, discipled, and trained with drive-by ministries. They will be changed as Christians live amongst the people, come alongside them, share the gospel and disciple those who are converted. We need people to MOVEin.
All of our church planters and pastors are in need of help; the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. So would you prayerfully consider leaving the suburbs to move into a scheme? Maybe you are retiring and want to use the last decades of your life in service of the Lord – could it be in an area of deprivation? Maybe you are a young family and you are looking for somewhere to live – could it be in a scheme? Maybe the Lord is stirring your heart to something new – could it be in a poorer community?
Jesus said, “pick up your cross and follow me.” Would you prayerfully consider taking up your cross and moving into a new area? It may cost you in terms of comfort but the move could have eternal ramifications.
