Diocesan Issues

The Scottish Episcopal Church has an interest in all issues affecting the lives of the people of Scotland and beyond, and engages at a number of levels in responding to a wide range of topics and news items.  Official church statements or responses are generally made through the issuing of press releases, or in comment or opinion expressed by one of the seven Bishops of the Scottish Episcopal Church.

When appropriate, the Church will also express its views on a particular issue through the submission of a response to a Government consultation.  This is usually done through one of the Boards of the Church’s General Synod.
