Donate to the Church

In communities across Scotland and beyond, churches provide ministry, practical support and loving care to people from all walks of life.

Many Church of Scotland ministers and their congregations provide pastoral care and spiritual support to people who need reassurance, hope and comfort.

In addition, many churches provide critical community services such as running foodbanks and feeding the hungry and homeless. A donation from you can help support the Church's work in your area and ensure the Church is sufficiently equipped and resourced to serve congregations and their communities.

Whether you are a church member who wants to give your regular offering to your own congregation or a friend to the Church who is moved to contribute for the good of your community, we want to help you support the Church in whichever way you feel led.

Through the donation form below, you may choose to give a one-off donation or donate every month. You can opt to direct your gift to a specific congregation or contribute to the general funds of the Church for use wherever the need is greatest.

Thank you for supporting the Church of Scotland.
