The Big Question

This month’s question is: ‘How does your church maintain a presence in the community?’

Would you like to take part in a future Big Question? Send us your details and interests to or write to us at Life and Work, 121 George Street, Edinburgh, EH2 4YN.

The Rev Colin Brough, minister, Fintry Parish Church, Dundee

“We’ve been welcomed by those we work alongside in Fintry as we’ve listened to what is going on around us.

“Relationships grew out of a piece of research we started in 2005 exploring what practical needs there were in the local area.

“Those relationships deepened as we continued to listen through regularly hosting the ‘Fintry Forum’, a community networking event where we’ve offered what we have (a neutral context, and great food!) for the benefit of the whole community.’
