Most Rev Mark Strange, the Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, and Lord Wallace, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, signing the Declaration

The Saint Andrew Declaration is a new agreement between the Church of Scotland and the Scottish Episcopal Church. It states that each church formally recognises one another as part of the one church of Jesus Christ and it lays a firm foundation, through a series of Acknowledgements and Commitments for our two churches to work together in response to our common calling to minister to the whole people of Scotland. It was adopted overwhelmingly by both the General Assembly and the General Synod earlier in 2021.

At a service to celebrate the Declaration, the Most Rev Mark Strange, the Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, and Lord Wallace, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, officially signed the Saint Andrew Declaration on behalf of the two churches. The service was held in St Mary’s Scottish Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh on November 30th and was live streamed.
