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


Every week during the term we’ve Small Groups meeting around the city. These are fantastic ways of getting to know other students & young adults, worship together, build friendships & have life-giving discussion about the bible.


On the first Tuesday of every month we meet up for a big gathering of our students called Authentic Hangouts. These are spaces where we meet together as students & young adults across Edinburgh, invite our friends to join us, get to know each other more, listen to a short talk, live music & have lots of fun. Follow @authentic_dest for updates on Authentic Hangouts.
