We are congregations of the Church of Scotland and part of the world-wide Christian church.
We are a Protestant church and have a Presbyterian form of government. We are part of a tradition of reformed churches of many denominations in Scotland and throughout the world.
We are also a National church ministering to the whole of Scotland through a system of parishes. Every congregation of the Church of Scotland is a parish church, responsible for sharing the Christian faith with all the people in the parish area.
As Christians we believe in one, living God : Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Our one God reveals God’s own self to us in three ways: as Creator ; through Jesus Christ ; in the on-going activity of the Holy Spirit.
Sometimes we declare our faith by saying a statement of Christian belief that expands a bit on what we believe. This expresses the heart of our Christian faith and we say it together, as a congregation, at special services such as baptism, profession of faith, confirmation and communion.
