The spiritual needs we face in Scotland are huge. Developing the next generation of church leaders and gospel workers is a key factor in responding to these needs.
Cornhill Scotland aims to:
- Train men and women who have a desire to reach the lost and who are ready to risk, to innovate – who will not hesitate to break the mould to teach people the gospel; and
- Produce future leaders who will themselves be trainers, developing a network of training churches across Scotland.
Investing in the development of leaders to serve the 21st century Church
Our goal is not simply the training of leaders, but the emergence of a growing number of training churches in which gospel ministry is multiplied, and through which the nation can be reached for Christ.
Our part in this is to support the training of leaders who not only train other leaders, but build churches in which a culture of ongoing training is deeply embedded in church life at every level. Men and women who are trained through Cornhill Scotland are committed to, and equipped for this vision – and, already, we are seeing the fruits of their ministries.
Our biggest challenge is not finding men and women who want to train this way, or pastors who want to partner with us; it is funding. Few churches can fund Apprentice and Associate (Training) Pastor positions. We want to subsidise such positions to help establish this vision for training leaders for the 21st century church.
Cornhill Scotland is a registered charity and we rely solely on the income generated by student fees and donations that come in. We would ask you to prayerfully consider whether you can give to the work of Cornhill.
Giving to Cornhill Scotland could make a significant difference in our support of these men and women in training.

BECOMING A GOSPEL PATRON
What is a Gospel Patron?
William Tyndale first translated the Bible into English. George Whitfield and John Newton were great evangelists who played a critical role in the extraordinary revivals of their time.
What is less known is the fact that their impact was only made possible because God chose to use wealthy people to collaborate with them. Behind-the-scenes, ‘Gospel Patrons’ emboldened them and enabled their ministries to go much further than they might otherwise have gone.
It is perhaps surprising that this mission-critical aspect of their ministries has been so little talked about. The truth is that generous men and women are God’s main means of supporting his work. We see in Luke 8 that Gospel Patronage has been the model since Jesus himself walked the earth.
“[Jesus] went on through cities and villages, proclaiming and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with him, and also some women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities: Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out, and Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Herod’s household manager, and Susanna, eir death the estate is then left to Cornhill Scotland.
If you have prayerfully decided to leave a legacy gift to Cornhill Scotland:
- Speak to a lawyer about making a will and leaving a legacy gift as part of your will.
- If you have already made a will, the simplest way to leave a legacy is to make a change in your will using a codicil. A codicil simply adds an extra instruction or replaces existing provisions with new directives and avoids the necessity and cost of making a new will. This can be done by speaking to a lawyer.
- You may also wish to speak to your family or next of kin so they are aware of your decision.
- It would be helpful if you could inform the Administrator at Cornhill Scotland (see page 3) of your decision at the time of making your will. This will remain confidential.
Information your lawyer may need:
- The type of legacy you intend to leave to Cornhill Scotland
- Scottish Charity Number: SC036735
- Registered address: 25 Bath Street, Glasgow G2 1HW
