Good Afternoon, and welcome to

The Scottish College

Scottish College gathers people in communities of faith and freedom - to learn and to listen, to speak and to grow. Our programmes prepare individuals to be Ministers of Word and Sacrament, as well as for other forms of service in today’s church.  Our fellowship of learning begins with, but stretches far beyond, our ordinand students. Most modules and worshops we offer are open to all.

The College is in educational partnership with the National Synod of Scotland of the United Reformed Church, for which it provides provide training and development support.

The College  is recognised by the URC General Assembly as a Resource Centre for Learning. The other URC-recognised RCLs are Westminster College and Northern College. A summary of recent work undertaken by the the three institutions can be found here.
