The work of Grace Baptist Partnerships in Scotland began in 2011 when Ali McLachlan was appointed as the Associate General Secretary called to serve in facilitating church planting initiatives and supporting church revitalisations in this country. Ali was then sent by Trinity Baptist Church Dundee to plant Grace Baptist Church Edinburgh in 2013. In this time the church in Edinburgh has reached thousands of homes with Christian literature and evangelism, seeing many being added to the church and baptised upon profession of faith. The church has also trained leaders and sent workers to plant churches in Govan and Bydgoszcz.
