Encourage and promote public understanding of why it is important to protect Scotlands rich cultural and ecclesiastical heritage. We seek to advance the preservation, promotion and maintenance of Scotlands historical church architecture and to encourage churches to welcome visitors.
Churches and places of worship define who we are, Their history is unique, built for one denomination, often with peculiarities that speak of the community that first enjoyed them and then changing and evolving as national and local history changed and evolved. Churches can be a quiet place of worship and reflection but equally they can be and exciting place to explore, containing a wealth of interest, information and wonder.
Scotlands Churches Trust seeks to preserve this for future generations, wether your interest is religion, history, architecture, culture or genealogy.
Scotlands Churches Trust works directly with active places of worship to provide when available, grants and bursaries to aid this preservation.
We also provide a directory of churches with information to help people looking to visit and experience these amazing buildings.
