Shine | Edinburgh Fringe Festival


Unfortunately, due to social distancing restrictions, the Festivals in Edinburgh are cancelled for 2020 and therefore the SHINE outreach. We pray and trust that we can gather again next year and be a blessing to Edinburgh and the nations!

Shine is YWAM Scotland’s annual outreach to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. As the world’s largest arts festival, the Edinburgh Fringe is a fantastic opportunity to share the hope of Christ with people from around the world. You’ll find the streets and venues throughout the city filled with thousands of artists, musician, comedians, actors and street performers playing to an audience of millions.

Shine gathers Christians who want to see the kingdom of heaven released. We live in community sharing meals, daily worship and times of teaching and fellowship. In the afternoons and evenings, we take our community to the streets. Through dynamic street performances, outdoor prayer spaces, artistic intercession and creative evangelism, we carry the presence of Christ into the midst of the Fringe.

If you have a heart for artists, your own creative expression or creative arts team, let’s talk about how you can get involved. The outreach runs for one to three weeks in August each year. You can join us for part or all of this time.
