Established over 110 years ago, Women for Mission exists to promote the growth of the Christian faith by encouraging interest in cross-cultural mission as well as giving practical support to the Church’s mission work in Scotland and around the globe.

WfM supports mission in three ways:

  • By raising funds for mission projects which seek to offer practical help in areas of health, education, poverty and disaster around the world.

We actively support mission by recognising and meeting some of the real and practical needs of those on the mission field. One of the ways we do this is through our Annual Fundraising Project.

Everyone is invited to get involved in such projects and to help us raise funds will be of direct benefit to a wide range of mission work here in Scotland and around the globe.

  • By encouraging women of all ages in the Free Church of Scotland to use their gifts to support mission work.

Supporting mission is an opportunity to get creative and use our gifts. We have all been given different gifts, and God loves it when we use them for his glory. How could you use your particular gifts to support the spread of the gospel throughout the world?

  • By facilitating prayer and support for home and international mission.

Mission work requires heartfelt prayer – individually, locally and nationally. One of the best ways for us to develop a heart for mission is to gather together with others and simply learn more, to raise awareness of various needs, to pray for work that is already being done and to think of real ways we can support it or get involved. There are many local WfM groups and women’s gatherings in Free Churches throughout Scotland who organise fundraising activities and events in their churches.

On a national level, we encourage prayer for mission though both our Annual Get Together and our biennial Women’s Conference which is popular with women of all ages. These meetings are a superb opportunity to gather together, learn more and be encouraged about the variety of mission work that is happening in Scotland and beyond.

WfM’s Support A Volunteer Fund gives financial assistance to Free Church members who are volunteering for short-term mission work overseas. We also support mission at home in Scotland through our Heart for Home Fund which offers support to those who wish to show Jesus’ compassion to those around them in their communities.
