Peter Anderson, Senior Pastor, Destiny Church Edinburgh
Peter originally trained as an architect. In their living room in 1998, Peter and his wife, Angela, started a church in Edinburgh. Today Destiny Church runs five services each Sunday from three separate Edinburgh locations and have a vision to launch new locations in Edinburgh and the surrounding area in the coming years. The church has seen many hundreds of decisions for Christ each year and one of the heartbeats of the church is to extend the love of God in practical ways to significantly impact the poor and needy in the city. Peter is also passionately committed to training and sending out church planters to establish new churches around the world.
