Our Faith


We are a congregation of the Church of Scotland which is the largest Christian denomination in Scotland. The Church of Scotland, as with any large denomination, represents a range of views on different issues. We hold to the ecumenical creeds of the church catholic and use the Apostles Creed and Nicene Creed on occasion during worship. We sit within the Reformed tradition and emerged as a denomination as part of the reformations of the 16th century. Originally our confessional basis was the Scots Confession from 1560. This was replaced by the Westminster Confession of Faith in 1647 which remains the subordinate standard of the Church of Scotland. The Word of God contained in The Holy Scriptures are the supreme rule of faith and life. The Church of Scotland is Presbyterian in outlook. If you would like to find out more about the wider structures and governance of the national church please go to the website.

 

We think that faith is a both a life-long commitment and also a life-long learning opportunity. One of our goals is to offer ways for our church community to nurture its faith. Lively faith always expresses itself in action and further research on this website testifies to this over a range of concerns.
