Merkinch, located in the city of Inverness, is among the most deprived areas in Scotland despite being less that two miles away from one of the wealthiest areas. This scheme is a close-knit community. However, Merkinch struggles with high crime rates, mental health problems, and poor education.
Hope for Merkinch
20schemes has partnered with the Free North Church in Inverness to revitalize a church in the area. Chris Davidson, along with his wife Katherine, are in the early stages of this planting effort. Along with living in the scheme, Chris and Katherine lead a community night each Wednesday where they prepare a meal and have Bible study.
