Destiny Youth exists to see youth culture changed in our city through the power of the good news of Jesus Christ. We believe today’s youth want to make a difference with their lives and we want to empower them to be able to do that. We are a discipleship movement that seeks to help young people encounter Jesus, live for him in a credible way in every part of their lives and ultimately be vessels for the incredible love of Jesus which we believe will transform the culture in schools, communities and families across our capital city. If you are aged between S1 to S6 then we would love for you to join us in this amazing journey.


We meet on a Sunday morning during the service in our Gorgie, Leith and South locations. Our Sundays are built around relationships and applying what God has been teaching us on Friday nights. We use this time to pray, play games, hold each other accountable, drink hot chocolate and explore how the Bible impacts our everyday lives. We also encourage our teenagers to play their part in seeing Jesus building his church by getting involved in serving on a Sunday morning and in the local community.

Friday Nights

Our Gorgie venue is the place to be on a Friday night!

Youth from all over the city converge and bring along their friends for one of the most fun Friday nights in Edinburgh.

Expect loud music, great food, games consoles, space to chat and a really welcoming atmosphere.

More than that, it’s a place where young people can encounter Jesus personally in a way that’s relevant to them with upbeat worship and inspiring preaching.

Come along and bring your friends!
