The Society

The Scottish Church Theology Society was formed in 1943. Its objectives are to encourage the study of theology in Scotland, to encourage ministers to continue their theological study, to apply theology to the understanding of the issues of our time, and to help churches in Scotland take theology seriously. Membership is open to individuals over 16, or other organisations in sympathy with the objects of the Society.
