CCE is a Scottish Network Church. The Scottish Network is a relational network of various churches and church leaders who support one another and collaborate together to further God’s mission in Scotland.
We are also part of the Pioneer Network, primarily through an on-going friendship with Allan Cox, who visits Edinburgh a couple of times a year, sometimes with his wife Lizzie, to support and coach the leaders, adding an outside perspective that is invaluable.
We have formed strong relationships in Edinburgh’s Christian community, including in the Newington area of the city through “Newington Churches Together”. These relationships have developed across denominational boundaries, working together in unity, looking to serve our city particularly with a food bank, hosted in the CCE church building. There are also city-wide ministers prayer events that the leaders of CCE attend.
In 2008, a group emerged from Community Church, to start a prayer room and Core Community on the edge of Edinburgh, called Wellsprings. Dave Hewitt, at that time one of the leaders and staff of Community Church, is leading this new initiative.
Further afield, we also cherish links in Uganda, Poland, Slovakia and Kenya.
