Connecting Baptist churches in mission

The Baptist Union of Scotland is a network of over 150 churches across the length and breadth of Scotland. We are local churches who recognise that if we are to fulfil the commission Jesus has given his disciples, it is better to work together than continue alone.

We are a relational network who support one another through prayer and encouragement. We share resources and experience in mission. We equip and accredit leaders. We work together to develop vision and ensure legal compliance.

Find out about our wide range of events throughout the year, we’d love to see you there…

We are called to be a network of prayer, for one another and the nation of Scotland…

We offer a range of opportunities across the year including courses, seminars…
