A movement seeking to empower leaders,
equip the church and restore hope

  The vision

What we do

We are growing Centres of Mission, these are regional networks of people longing to see hope restored in their communities. Centres of Mission are currently being established in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Belfast with plans for expansion in the future. Each Centre of Mission is composed of 3 key elements; Innovate, Renovate and Cultivate.


Equipping pioneers to reimagine church and provoke church planting.


Encouraging existing church leaders to restore a missional heart and discipleship culture in their churches.


Training disciples to grow in knowledge and faith to take the gospel into every area of culture and society.

More about what we do

Putting mission and discipleship tools in the hands of everyone


We would love for everyone who is part of the Cairn family to join us in a daily rhythm of reading God’s word, worshiping and praying. By subscribing to Rooted, we can do go on this journey together.

God has given us a vision to see the Celtic Lands transformed by Him. In order to serve that vision, we need to finance it. If you feel like God has captured your heart for this vision too, could you think about financially supporting us?
