Churches in Edinburgh played a vital role 175 years ago in the founding of what was to become the Edinburgh Medical Missionary Society and they continue to have a vital role supporting what today is known as EMMS International.
Throughout August, as part of the anniversary year, there will be an extensive exhibition in Edinburgh Central Library, looking at the history of the organisation, including a feature on Dr David Livingstone.
EMMS invites you to a special event in August for Church leaders on 23rd August, from 2-4pm to view the exhibition and celebrate past and contemporary links between EMMS International and churches in Edinburgh. There will be a guided tour followed by a presentation about our life-saving healthcare work and the opportunity to find out more about our church partnerships.
Date: 23rd August 2016
