In 2023, the Scottish Churches China Group celebrated 40 years of working with Chinese partners. We’re proud to know that we are part of a continuing link between Scotland and China, dating back to the first medical missionaries to visit North East China in the late 1800s. The SCCG, itself, was founded as an ecumenical group in 1983.

We’ve achieved a lot in 40 years – improving health and education provision in China, exchanging expertise, training staff and providing resources.

The SCCG most recently visited China in late 2023 and currently has requests from partners in Shenyang and Nanjing for training for inclusive education projects (autism and other learning disabilities), elderly care and dementia support, care for children with life-limiting illness, palliative and spiritual care, and mental health support for staff.

These requests can only be met if we have sufficient funds.
