I found this little clip of the social history of Niddrie and Craigmillar online. I have also discovered that the urban regeneration that has been going on here for the last 10 years is not the first time the government has tried to ‘clean up’ the area in the last 100 years. Indeed, Niddrie & Craigmillar have both received many facelifts over that time. It is heartening to think that a place which once had a thriving Christian witness is slowly, but surely, coming to embrace the church here as a real centre point for community life.
Keep praying for us.
