Let Us Pray Campaign
The Scottish Government has promised to publish a consultation before the end of the year on ‘ending conversion practices’.

A letter has been written by the Let Us Pray Campaign to the Equalities Minister, Emma Roddick, expressing serious concerns that the Government’s plans for a ‘conversion therapy’ Bill threaten to criminalise aspects of the ordinary work of churches. Stephen Allison, Public Engagement Coordinator for the Free Church, is one of the lead signatories.

Church leaders, pastoral workers and anyone else in Scotland is encouraged to sign the letter. Your name and information will not be made public. 

If you would like to sign, go to: https://letuspray.uk/take-action/scotland and feel free to share this with your friends.

Gaelic ‘Share a story Bible’ 
The Scottish Bible Society has published & printed 1500 copies of a Gaelic translation of its ‘Share a story’ Bible. Thanks go to the Church of Scotland Gaelic committee for funding these copies, to be distributed FREE OF CHARGE to all who request them.

These were primarily produced to encourage families to read to their children at home but they can also be used in churches, Sunday clubs & schools. An audiobook has also been produced to help non-Gaelic speaking families to sit & read-along with their child - a QR code inside the book will lead you to the page on our website where you can stream or download the tracks.

To claim a copy, just contact the Gaelic Hub based at Uig Parish Church on the Isle of Lewis by emailing [email protected]. We are also hoping to have a few copies available at the Stornoway Christian Bookshop soon.
