Our Office team is based at The Coracle, our headquarters! We have a small team of four core staff at the office who work together to make sure our organization functions smoothly.
Alongside them, we have 5 Mission Strengtheners. These heroes work all around Edinburgh running our ministries and giving support to vulnerable families in the most deprived communities in our City.
Duncan Cuthill - CEO
"I believe with all my heart that the city could be transformed by a prayerful, strong, vibrant and growing City Mission which is “stimulating and strengthening the church’s mission.”
Sarah Johnson - Outreach Team Leader
"I followed God’s lead into work for Edinburgh City Mission over 10 years ago. While my role has changed during the last ten years my heart has always been to bring light, open eyes that can’t see and release people from their ‘captivities’."
Fiona Russell - Part-time Office Manager
"I feel my role at Edinburgh City Mission brings together so much of my experience, who God has made me to be and what he has put on my heart. I love supporting our amazing outreach team in our vision to stimulate and strengthen the church’s mission in Edinburgh, bringing help and hope into the lives of those experiencing hardship."
Maria Reyes - Part-time Communications Assistant
"I love to be part of a team that seeks to see lives transformed because of the redemptive Gospel, the one that restores the soul, but also that brings social and economic justice"
Natalia Pelttari - Mission Strengthener.
"I love Edinburgh City Mission’s calling to go where Jesus would go, to the despised and the forgotten places to bring God’s light of forgiveness, redemption and love."
Miles Libke - Mission Strengthener.
"I am a Mission Strengthener because I desire to see people across our city experience the freedom that God has for them in all areas of their life. I have a huge heart for the local church, and seeing the church step into all that she is called to be - and that’s why we’re here."
Charity Pritchard - Mission Strengthener.
"My faith has always been intertwined with social action and the recognition that God cares for the whole person: mind, body and soul. Indeed to care for the whole person is to truly love them. Since starting working life I have passionately pursued work in Christian social care settings. Working as a Mission Strengthener is really just another outworking of that simple faith that God loves me and treasures all people as his children."
Andy Boyle - Mission Strengthener.
"I love meeting our clients and hearing their stories. It’s a great opportunity to support and show them the love of Jesus. I constantly talk about what Jesus did for me and how he has transformed me from the man I was to the man I am now with Him living in me."
Sarah Kirkland - Volunteer Support Worker
"I grew up on an Island in the Bahamas and watched my parents work in the mission field there, I think this background really built within me a passion for not only sharing Gods love spiritually but also practically, particularly, for those who are vulnerable. I knew that this was something that God had placed on my heart and so when I came to University I was keen to serve in any way and I have now been volunteering with Edinburgh City Mission as their Support Worker and have really been welcomed into the team as I try to balance my passions for outreach as I finished my University studies"
Ketie Bogie - Volunteer Support Worker
"So many people I meet at the Basics Bank are working desperately hard to keep themselves and their families supported, and so often the crisis they are in results from unfortunate circumstances that could happen to anyone at any time. Each week I find myself admiring the way these hardships are faced with resilience and openness. It is wonderful to be able to sit down with each person at the basics bank to listen, discuss ways to help difficult situations and pray."
