A Life in Ministry

There are no two ministries alike. Each Church of Scotland minister finds their own path in answering the call to ministry.

What the following stories show us is that the life of a Church of Scotland minister can be as diverse and unique as the minister themselves.

"I had an idea in my head about what a minister was and it wasn’t me. But then I thought, if ministry isn't for me then it’s not for anyone and maybe my perceptions need challenged." - Rev David McNeish

From the vast beauty of Stornoway to the walls of HM Prison Edinburgh, being a Church of Scotland minister can take you to places you never expected.
