Roadshow 2017 map landscapeFollowing the series of "On The Road" meetings held in 2016, the Councils of the Church have been drafting up a Strategic Plan as part of planning for the future.

As we await details about the National Day of Prayer (the impetus for which came out of the grass-roots meetings held across Scotland last year) let us all pray for those in the Councils as they come out "on the road" again to share progress and hear comments and feedback.

A number of dates have been lined up, all prior to the November Day of Prayer - if there is an event near you then go along and take part - let's all play our part in focusing the future strategy of the Church around the Word of God and its key message of "Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength and your neighbour as yourself."

Let us be people of the Word and people of deed also in showing the love of God to all around us, in the Church of Scotland and throughout the land of Scotland.

Details of dates and venues and a link to book places are here.

Please encourage others in your congregation to be part of this process and proclaim Christ in our Church and land.

Following the call to prayer from the General Assembly in May, the "Together We Pray" initiative from the Church of Scotland has been launched. We welcome this and urge all within Covenant Fellowship Scotland and the wider Church of Scotland to take part.

An introduction is available here and we will highlight other elements of the initiative as they are launched.

In common with many in the Kirk, CFS only became aware of the report from the Theological Forum as a result of it being leaked to the press and as a consequence of which it ended up in the media on Tuesday before even commissioners to the General Assembly had sight of it or had time to read or reflect upon it. We will need some days to prayerfully study and reflect upon the report and how we might respond to it. As we do this we would ask for your prayers.


 The latest Newsletter is now available and has been sent out to our Supporters' network.

With the title "Looking Back and Looking Forward" it highlights some of the main points arising from the last few months and includes specific prayer points for the start of 2017 and onward into the year.

Please pass the newsletter or the link on to any who may be supportive of Covenant Fellowship Scotland.

GA 2016 Cover

The 2016 General Assembly takes place in the next few weeks. It is important that we commit this to prayer as there are many issues which will be discussed on which we believe that God would want an evangelical, biblical view expressed.

At the recent pre-Assembly Gathering we agreed that we should prayerfully resist the Overture relating to Ministers and Deacons in Same-sex Marriage but we recognised that this is not the only issue on which Covenant Fellowship Scotland has a contribution to make.

A very helpful set of notes was presented covering the key points which will be discussed each day at Assembly. You can access that document here.

Please pray for grace and strength for Commissioners for what is a long week, and also for God to work in the whole Assembly to renew the Church that it might turn back to its reformed, biblical roots.


The Trustees are pleased to announce the appointment of Eric Smith as the new Director of Covenant Fellowship Scotland. Eric is an Elder and Session Clerk at Brightons Parish Church of Scotland, just outside Falkirk.

After an extended career in the chemical industry, Eric has been employed, since 2008, as a consultant offering administrative support to a Christian charity working in the business community in Edinburgh.

In his own words: “I am delighted and, at the same time, humbled to be given the opportunity to work for Covenant Fellowship Scotland. There is a great need for prayerful work within our national Church to reform and renew it and to bring it back on to the Scriptural pathway that God desires. I would greatly value your prayers in the coming months as the Trustees and I work to implement our strategy.”
