Authentic is our student and young adult group at Destiny Church. We want to be real about our faith and live the authentic life that Jesus is calling us to. We are passionate about seeing every student and young adult in Edinburgh fulfil their God-given potential to know Jesus and make a difference with their lives.


Each week we have Authentic Small Groups meeting around the city. These are fantastic ways of getting to know other students and young adults, worship together, build friendships and have life-giving discussion about the bible.


On the first Thursday of every month we meet at Costa Coffee on Hanover Street for Authentic Hangouts, come and be with us. These are spaces where we meet together as students & young adults across Edinburgh, get to know each other more, listen to a short talk, live music and have lots of fun.

Drinks are on us!

Date: 1st Thursday of every month*

Time: Doors open 7:30pm

Location: 1 Hanover St, Edinburgh EH2 2DL

* September date = Tuesday 11th September


Impact conference

On Saturday 27th October we will be travelling to Destiny Church Glasgow for the Impact 2018 conference for students and young adults. This will be a quality day filled with great worship, inspirational teaching, opportunities to build long-lasting friendships and helpful seminars to equip and empower students and young adults to live for Jesus.

Weekend away

Every year the weekend away is one of the highlights. Our annual weekend away is an incredible time to get to know others, grow in faith as well as great times of food and games.
