Becoming a SCIO

Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation

Many churches are considering converting to a SCIO and BUS has developed extensive resources and a model constitution for churches wishing to become a SCIO. These resources are currently under review at this time, contact us for more information.


On these pages you will find information, advice and support for church leaders. This includes guidance on ministry, mission, training, safeguarding, financial and legal compliance.


Prayer is at the heart of our Union. The prayer calendar is a framework to help individuals or congregations pray for all our churches throughout the year.  Every Sunday evening several hundred people from our churches across Scotland join in our National Prayer Livestream.
