About the Kirkgate Trust

What is the Kirkgate Trust?

The Kirkgate Trust is a charity that was set up by members of Liberton Kirk, to enable and support Christian mission among the under 25s in South East Edinburgh.

What does the Trust do?

It helps young people to explore and build upon their faith by involving them in activities such as youth events, weekends away, and travel to promote the Christian mission abroad. It has enabled many young people to undertake mission work in Europe, Africa and South America.

How is the Trust funded?

The trust was initially launched in 2001 following a major fundraising project, which enabled us to employ a church youth worker to work with young people in the area. Funding has also come from legacies and donations — a legacy has funded a student youth worker for three years.
