Canopy Autumn 2023 is coming soon!

Save the date and start planning to gather locally, and online nationally!

All the details can be found here

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.

We hope you encounter a rich range of resources, opportunities, news and stories here, along with information on events, prayer and ministry


Our ambition is to see Increase in all our churches around the country, and we are focusing on three strategic priorities:

  • Prayer – defining ourselves as a prayer network
  • Planting Churches – investing in new congregations, revitalisations and innovative new churches
  • Developing Pathways – for training and equipping church planters and evangelistic leaders

Increase Regional Prayer Gatherings

*September dates just announced*

One of our key priorities with the Increase Vision is Prayer and especially praying together.

We have launched a series of prayer gatherings around the country over the coming months, in partnership with local churches, to bring together churches in regions all across Scotland.

These opporutnities are to pray together, to worship God, to create space to listen and creatively explore the vision for Increase.

*NEW* Church Planting Course

Have you been wondering what all this talk about church planting is? Perhaps you have a wee inkling toward church planting and want to think about it more? Has God stirred you about church planting, but you don’t know what the next steps should be? Is your church looking to Increase through church planting? 

Well, the good news is we have a course for you. As part of our Increase vision, we have spoken about our “three P’s”, Prayer, Planting and Pathways. We are delighted to offer the first part of our church planting pathway, our Church Planting Course, a partnership with Forge Scotland. 

Click here to find out all about it, we’d love you to get involved!
