The Invisible Church
Learning from the experiences of churchless Christians.
Are you concerned for the health of the Church... discouraged by the decline of many congregations... a Christian, but not a church-goer? If your answer is ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then this book is for you.
Download the flyer for a pre-launch discount available until 21 May.
Daily Tweets
Mission and Discipleship and the Communications Dept. have teamed up to bring you daily worship tweets. If you haven't seen them already check out the Church of Scotland's Twitter feed or Facebook page.
New Learn Publication
Learning Disabilities: discussion starter is available to order and/or download from the Resourcing Mission shop. It provides a short article to read followed by a few questions for group discussion.
We hope you may be able to host a discussion within your Church. Please let us know if you do!
Learning Disabilities Working Group
The Learning Disabilities Working Group is seeking to develop contacts; one within each congregation of the Church. A few Churches responded to our request. You may be that contact! If so, thank you. If not, please check to see if your congregation has a contact. The nominated person will be asked to read a few communications each year and share and respond as appropriate. No special experience or expertise is required – just an interest. We also welcome contacts from friends who are not part of the Church of Scotland.
