ACORN is a program recognised by the Church of Scotland. It is a movement that seeks to connect Christians with the work God is doing in others through caring conversation.

Acorn achieves this through missional discipleship, by connecting Christian friends and fulfilling the A-C-O-R-N acronym, which is:

Ask – ‘Lord, is there anyone beyond the church You want me to connect with today?’
When God Calls and reveals a person for us, we simply Obey and follow through by contacting them in an appropriate way.

When we then approach this person simply by asking “How are you?”, God is already at work, within this connection. Our job is to find out what God is doing and join God in that conversation. God then reveal a deeper relationship and opens the door to the Gospel.
Christians then frequently gather to disciple and encourage each other by Reporting what God has been doing in and through them, and by Noticing what opportunities God providing.
Christians are then encouraged to mentor other Christian friends in this way of life.
