When you think of Scotland, you may think of redheaded, kilt-wearing, bagpipe-blowing Scots, right? Wrong. Scotland continues to be a hub for many immigrants from places like Eastern Europe (Roma Gypsies), East Asia (Pakistani and Indian), and the Middle East. And Hollywood has yet to capture the truly breathtaking landscapes of Scotland; from the mountainous Highlands to Inveraray’s famous castle and the seaside town of Dunoon, you will be amazed and overwhelmed at Scotland’s beauty.

Scotland

outreach

outreach

Most of Scotland’s youth consider God and Jesus “irrelevant” and believe they have better things to do on a Sunday than go to a church service. This is where you come in: your ministry will focus on building meaningful relationships. That may be hanging out with the local teenagers or ministering in a gritty neighborhood where over ten different languages are being spoken. You may also host “drop-in” youth clubs or run a VBS. Whether you’re eating BBQ on the beach or walking Edinburgh’s cobblestoned streets, we will teach you how to be intentional in all your conversations.

safety

safety

Royal Servants takes the safety and health of each participant seriously. We go to great lengths to ensure that participants remain healthy and safe throughout the trip. Therefore, no participant is allowed to be alone in any city; Royal Servants always travel in groups of three or more, and when possible, with either a male or Summer Staff in each group. The Trip Leaders also continually monitor conditions within the host country both before and during the trip. If a situation arises that threatens the security of the team, either politically or from environmental conditions, the team will be moved to a stable location.

There will be plenty of time to explore. You can wander the narrow, winding medieval streets of Edinburgh, popping into classy and bookish coffee shops that make you wish you owned a tweed jacket. You’ll see some of Scotland’s famous “lochs” (lakes), and hike along forested trails in the Scottish Highlands, with amazing views of sweeping valleys, green pastures, and countless sheep. If that still doesn’t tickle your fancy, what about seeing the iconic Big Ben, the Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace, or surfing the Underground during debriefing in London? Let’s go!

experience culture

experience culture

Your first cultural experience will be trying to understand what the Scots are saying to you! It may be English, but the Scottish accent can be hard to grasp. Due to the recent influx of immigrants from around the world, Scotland is now a melting pot of culture. The streets are a mix of plaid kilts, Asian turbans, and colorful middle-Eastern hijabs, lined with quintessential Scottish pubs, curry restaurants, and street performers competing for your attention in the shade of church spires and castle turrets.

spiritual growth

spiritual growth

When you sit under solid biblical teachings, engage in reading and memorizing God’s Word on a daily basis, and experience community through small group discipleship, spiritual growth will occur naturally. You’ll grow in your confidence that God is alive and at work among His people and in you. Here’s what students have said about the Scotland mission trip:

"I never would have believed that I was capable of truly influencing another person’s life. I am blessed that God has chosen me, that He has given me joy in my life, and that He wants to use me to bring others into a joyful relationship with Jesus.”

“God has taught me that my feelings should never be what govern my faith. What I know to be true about God through His Word is what I should follow – not my feelings.”

If you want to work in a post-Christian, multi-ethnic location, if you are ready to step outside your comfort zone and are not intimidated by those who think that your faith is outdated, irrelevant, and insignificant, and if the thought of getting to know people and developing friendships in a laid-back, relational way is appealing, then the Scotland mission trip might be right for you.

eating & Sleeping

eating & sleeping

Your team will shop locally and prepare most of its meals as a group. You’ll recognize most of the food, and it will be tasty and nutritious. You also may enjoy fish-n-chips, wrapped in brown paper at the mom and pop “chippy” down the road and washed down with a can of Irn-Bru. But let’s get even more traditional in one word: haggis. If you’re brave enough, you can’t leave Scotland without chowing down on sheep’s heart, liver, and lungs, ground-up and encased in its own stomach. This is often served with tatties (potatoes) to help calm the rumble that is sure to be in your tummy. Okay, so it might not be your favorite dish, but the nutty, savory texture will provide you with bragging rights!

You and your teammates will be going lean-and-mean by sleeping in churches that you partner with. You’ll stay in two in Scotland and another when you travel down to London. That means you’ll be right in the heart of the cities you’re working in, bringing you shoulder-to-shoulder with the locals and their culture. Pack your sleeping mats and bags and find a cozy corner of the church floor!

debriefing

We provide you with quality, intense training to prepare you for what you will experience overseas and your return home.

Training Camp (at the beginning of your trip): not only will your relationship with the Lord be built up through prayer, worship, study, scripture memory, and discipleship teachings, but you will gain some incredible friendships that can last a lifetime as your teammates become your family.

Debriefing (at the end of the trip): a sweet way to end your summer. We will give you the necessary tools and time of reflection to propel you forward as you continue to walk with Christ long after your mission trip ends.

We get to partner with some incredible people who are passionate about sharing the Gospel and being a witness in their community. One of them happens to be a woman who met Jesus through a Royal Servant in the 1980s. They are present 24/7, being an encouragement, a safe place, and a positive voice in the often depressing and dark corners of Scotland’s suburbs. I think it’s safe to say you’ll be inspired and challenged to embrace the same zeal and passion for your home communities as the believing Scottish community does theirs.
