Welcome to Edinburgh Navs
What we’re about
We want to help university students to encounter Jesus Christ, begin a relationship characterised by deepening love for him, and then grow to love, support and equip those around them.
We believe that relationships based on real honesty and a hunger for God’s word are the foundations for both knowing him and becoming a disciple. We desire that everyone that comes into contact with the Navs becomes equipped to bless and strengthen others.
We meet together to study the Bible on Tuesday nights so that we can hear what God is saying to us through his word. But the Bible doesn’t present the Gospel as merely a discussion topic or a set of statements. It begins with the whole creation becoming alienated from God and ends in everything being made new in his son, Jesus Christ. Central to this is the transforming of people, and our lives and relationships. So we both study and grapple with what the Bible says, AND we seek to sow the word in our lives so that Jesus Christ blossoms in all we are and do. We therefore also spend time together getting to know one another, talking about our lives, eating, playing sport, watching films or whatever else life throws up.
Together we are seeking to understand how the Gospel of Jesus Christ touches, transforms and bears fruit in every aspect of our lives, so that God might be glorified in the lives of people really knowing and sharing him.Colin Gillies
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING…
I joined Edinburgh Navs in my third year of studies at Edinburgh University. I’d attended small groups before in my past however none compared with Navs in the way they welcomed and cared for me. My group leader, Ben, brought me round for porridge often and he taught me how to study the bible – which I am thankful for to this day.David Gibson
As a student in Navs, I was blown away by how more mature believers were blatantly open about their lives. No masquerades or pretense; they took confident refuge in Jesus for his daily grace. Watching this for months in my leader, Carmela, my reaction towards God was “If following you means admitting my sin and still being loved, I’m in.”Kat Shepherd
I joined NAVS in my third year at uni, and immediately felt at home. For me, NAVS was the first place in which I experienced what it was like to be completely honest with other people about life and faith, including all the great things but also all of my questions and confusion. Not only did this develop great friendships, it has truly helped me understand God better and develop my relationship with HimBeth Turvey
