The Listening Project

The Church of Scotland is looking to hear from people 16 and older throughout the Church about their experiences of faith and church during the coronavirus pandemic.

As a Church we recognise that the Covid 19 pandemic has affected us all. We feel it is important that as a Church we listen to one another’s experiences and share what we have learnt from this difficult and challenging time.

To help us do this, the Church of Scotland’s trustees are initiating a Listening Project. We want to hear from all kinds of people aged 16 and older from across the Church, people of different generations, living in different circumstances in every corner of the country.

During this season of extraordinary challenges and unparalleled opportunities, this project will enable us to share our experiences; to hear one another’s perspectives and, in doing so, develop a richer and more complete understanding of what has been happening and what we should be learning.

Regardless of your connection or involvement with the Church, we would love to hear from you. We want to hear from people of different generations and from all corners of the country

By taking some time to reflect and consider, it is hoped that everyone who participates will benefit personally as well as contribute to an important shared venture.

The Church of Scotland Listening Project has been carefully designed to ensure that you can share your experiences and insights with confidence, fully assured that your confidentiality will be carefully guarded.

Participation is via an online form, but if you would like to arrange for someone to help you, please call the following number and leave a brief message: 07966 286617. Likewise, if you know others who would like to be involved, but who are unable to complete the online form, please encourage them to call that number. A team of trained facilitators is available to enable people to complete the form over the phone. Access to the internet or familiarity with IT should not be a barrier to anyone making their contribution.

Please share the word among anyone who has any connection with the Church of Scotland and encourage them to share their unique contribution.
