With there being so many different denominations, it can be difficult to distinguish between the branches of the Christian Church.

The Free Church of Scotland subscribes to all of the mainstream Christian orthodox beliefs, and our vision is simply to worship God together and to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

At a basic level we have around 100 congregations all over Scotland, and over 13,000 people attend worship each week. The Church also has links to other denominations in North America, Africa, Asia and Australia. We have a full-time theological seminary in Edinburgh for the training of ministers and other Christian workers, and we are also involved with mission work in India, Latin America and South Africa. We hope the links on the left will give you an idea of the distinctive flavour of the Free Church – how it came into being, and what we stand for today.
