About The Church of Scotland

The Church of Scotland seeks to inspire the people of Scotland and beyond with the Good News of Jesus Christ through enthusiastic worshipping, witnessing, nurturing and serving communities.

The Church of Scotland is one of the largest organisations in the country. We have around 300,000 members, with more regularly involved in local congregations and our work. We have around 650 ministers serving in parishes and chaplaincies, supported by both centrally and locally employed staff.

Most of our parishes are in Scotland, but we also have churches in England, Europe and overseas. The Church of Scotland plays a pivotal role in Scottish society and works with communities worldwide.
