Priorities for Education

We believe that the Church of Scotland has a continued role in reflecting Scotland's history and Christian heritage, and building on the critical importance of respect for and understanding of a range of faith and belief systems. In a world where religion is playing an increasing role, whether it be extremists whose interpretation of faith leads to violent terrorism, to inter faith platforms to tackle global problems such as climate change or human trafficking, the importance for every person to understand and reflect on the role of religion in society has never been greater.


Schools and Chaplains

A range of resources for use by schools and their chaplains in school assemblies and classrooms has been developed by the Church of Scotland for Learning Teaching Scotland.
