Text for the week

"Let us not become weary in doing good,

for at a proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people,

especially to those who belong to the family of believers."


Thought for the week

"It is easy to sit up and take notice.

What is difficult is getting up and taking action."

Honore de Balzac

Ensuring a Safe Church for All


The Church of Scotland has a deep concern for the wholeness and well-being of each individual. Through its congregations, working together with the Safeguarding Service and statutory agencies, the Church seeks to safeguard the welfare of all people who come into contact with the Church and its services.


The Gospel proclaims that it is the reponsibility of everyone within the fellowship of the Church to prevent harm, be it physical, sexual or emotional, and we will always seek to reduce risk.


The Church's commitment to safeguarding reminds us that God cares passionately about the welfare and well-being of all people.
