Our other work

  • Care for the Earth

    The Church of Scotland is concerned that climate change poses a serious and immediate threat to people everywhere, particularly to the poor of the earth; and that climate change represents a failure in our stewardship of God's creation.

  • Education

    Education issues fall under the remit of the Church and Society Council, and include religious observance in schools, social and moral education and sexual health strategies in education.

  • International affairs and peacekeeping

    The Church takes a key role in responding to a range of European and international issues, and works towards the goal of peace worldwide. You can read more about some of the current international issues where the Church has responded or taken action.

  • International Women's day

    International Women's Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.

  • Make a difference locally

    Find out about how you can take part in various campaigns and events that the Church of Scotland is currently supporting.

  • Politics and government

    The faith of the Church gives it a passionate commitment to the well-being of the nation. Putting that into practice takes many forms, both locally and nationally, and our faith does not only relate to a 'religious agenda' but to practical caring.

  • Poverty and economics

    National Ethical Investment Week, running 13 to 19 October, is a campaign to ensure that everyone knows that they have green and ethical options when it comes to their finance and investment decisions.

  • Social issues

    The community, social and political aspects of our lives are vital if we are to understand who we are and if we are to understand how best to love our neighbours as ourselves.

  • Science and technology

    Technology has brought many great benefits to society, which we often take for granted, but it can also pose big ethical dilemmas - not just unexpected risks and side-effects, but unintended social consequences and even changes in our moral outlook.

  • Same sex marriage

    The Legal Questions Committee of The Church of Scotland responded to the Scottish Government’s document, 'The Registration of Civil Partnerships, Same Sex Marriage' on 1 December 2011.

  • Scottish Faiths Action for Refugees

    Scottish Faiths Action for Refugees is a project which seeks to co-ordinate and promote action by faith communities in Scotland to support asylum seekers and refugees.
