Take Up Your Cross and Follow Jesus.

Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”  (Matt16:24)

Urban Reach is a Youth Ministry working with and supported by Wester Hailes Baptist Church in Edinburgh who are picking up their Cross and following Jesus, we are reaching out to our urban area with the word of God, walking in faith, being bold and proud to say we are followers of Jesus Christ, and are helping mobilise your kids and teenagers to relationally and relentlessly make disciples
who make disciples..


We help young people connect with the Youth Ministry in a variety of ways through our local weekly youth and children’s groups, with youth group resources and practical teen faith-sharing tools and with a committed team of helper and volunteers.

By the end of the year we look to hold special events, holidays, and develop community projects and training programmes to help them work through whatever problems life may throw at them. We aim to help give them life skills, so they will have passion to engage with other young people and children who are believers and non-believers in Edinburgh Scotland and the UK.


We are hoping by the end of this year or start of next year, to start internship programs here at Urban Reach,  but we realise that it is people like you who really make all the difference and we would love you to help and join us.

This can be voluntary or just as a helper.

Being part of the Prayer team there are a number of practical ways that you can support the Urban Reach in prayer:

So please get involved so you too can help us to stay focused not just on our own lives, but help us stay focused so we can continue to give help where needed to help minister to those young people around us locally, city wide nationally.

We’d love to hear what God is doing in and through you as you seek to serve Him and the young people of this nation and others.

Please get in touch…
