Why a Union?

Why a Union?

2023 saw one of the most major upheavals in the Church in Scotland since the Great Disruption of 1843.

Throughout the country, churches are closing and congregations are amalgamating at a greater rate than ever before. This has been brought about by falling numbers, too many old buildings, a shortage of ministers and the realisation that the church will only be strengthened by a return to emphasis on mission.

 

Complicating these changes for us, sadly, has been the retiral of Rev. Ian Maclean in August 2023 and then Rev. Geoff Redmayne in October 2023.

 

So, seriously ALL CHANGE.
