Ecumenical Relations Committee

Within the Church of Scotland, the Ecumenical Relations Committee is responsible for encouraging and enabling an ecumenical vision in Scotland.

Members seek to encourage ecumenical engagement through the councils, presbyteries, and congregations of the Church of Scotland.

We promote understanding through ecumenical working drawn from international and European levels. As part of the universal Church, we believe that God calls us to celebrate and move towards visible unity, to strive to work more closely with our Christian sisters and brothers in Scotland and throughout the world.

Our work

The committee attempts to assist projects at local and national level which develop ecumenical relationships. More and more around Scotland, men and women are working, studying, and worshipping together with other Christians, and the committee organises local and national events. There is a network of ecumenical representatives who work at creating and fostering local co-operation. Find out more about our ecumenical work.
