Politics and government
The faith of the Church gives it a passionate commitment to the wellbeing 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.
Our experience, vision and values are what we want to contribute to the decision-making process that is shaping communities in Scotland. The Church and Society Council works closely with ecumenical partners and the UK and Scottish parliaments on a range of key issues.
The Scottish Churches Parliamentary office can help you to have your say, providing advice and support to individuals, groups and churches. Visit their website to find current consultations, briefing papers on topical issues, official responses to government consultations and interviews.
Are you interested in holding a community meeting in your local church, encouraging people to think about the values and ideas that they aspire to see in Scotland in the future?
