Missionary Work Today

There are still Christian missionaries today. Missionaries can live lives very similar, in some ways, to David’s. They aim to help others by sharing their faith with people all around the world.

There are missionaries who represent all faiths and all seek to serve others and share their faith through relationships and acts of service. This can be through education, social justice, healthcare and economic development.

Missionaries are often present in disaster zones and global catastrophes. Some examples of these include Islamic Relief and Christian Aid.

People’s values are shaped by many things, including religion. In this activity, we look at the values of a Global Citizen, and think about what our values might be...


We are very grateful to our key funders the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic Environment Scotland and the Scottish Government for their support in helping us deliver the Birthplace Project.
