Vocations

The Church of Scotland is actively looking for the next generation of ministers.

Rev Michael Mair

We seek women and men of all ages who feel called to serve the church and are considering entering our comprehensive ordained ministry programme.

Being a minister is one of the most challenging, yet rewarding jobs in Scotland. It requires leadership, resilience, compassion and energy.

You will go places you never knew you would go and do things you never thought you could.”

Reverend Michael Mair, St David's Broomhouse Parish, Edinburgh

You will be at the heart of the most important days of people's lives - whether they are getting married, or saying their final goodbyes.

If you feel a call to ministry please explore the following vocations pages and get in touch with us at vocations@churchofscotland.org.uk
