Our Church

Our Church is an opportunity for congregations up and down Scotland and beyond to share their challenges, successes and history. If you're interested in telling us a bit about your church community then we would love to hear from you.

Around 100,000 people living here, of which approximately 5,000 are Scots - but it feels bigger. Not for nothing do people call this place the "Channel Highlands." However, Scots are far from the largest minority on the island. There are, for example, around 10,000 Portugese.
