Surround the City!

Date: 28th August 2021


  • : Donations welcome

Join us as we walk to every school in Edinburgh and surround them in prayer for the new term! 2pm - 5.30pm (approx.)

Nine sponsored walks and one 33 mile run to surround all Edinburgh schools in prayer for the new term!  


Join us on Saturday 28th August as we walk to every school in Edinburgh.  

Nine separate teams will be leaving at 2pm from locations around the city, following pre-planned routes. By around 5.30pm, we'll have visited every school in Edinburgh! 18 months on from Covid halting SU schools ministry, this is an opportunity to highlight our continued desire to see a Christian witness in every school in Edinburgh. [As part of the event, es-team Leader, Angus Moyes, will run around the whole city of Edinburgh – around 33 miles! (silly boy)]  


Join a walk team and pray for each school as you walk (see below) or help us reach our £5000 fundraising target by donating at the link below. Each walk will be led by an SU Scotland staff member or SU volunteer. Follow the links below to see the walk routes and schools covered. All walks are between 8 and 10.5 miles in length and should take approximately 2.5 to 3.5 hours to complete. Children and young people are very welcome to join a walk, but they must be accompanied by an adult if under 16. We would love all ages to get involved so please get in touch if you would like to do part of a route.
