Evangelicals establish new network

Monday June 17 2013

A new network of evangelicals within the Church of Scotland has been formed.

The Church of Scotland Evangelical Network was launched on Friday (June 14) at a meeting in Letham St Mark’s Church, at which evangelicals discussed the way forward following the decisions of last month's General Assembly on same-sex relationships and the ministry.

Commenting in a statement released by the Rev Prof Andrew McGowan and the Rev Jim Stewart on behalf of the network, the group said: “Today in Perth there was a large gathering of 350 evangelicals from the Church of Scotland (ministers, elders and members). The result of this was the formation of a network of evangelicals who have made the clear decision to remain in the Church of Scotland and to work for its reformation and renewal.

"We believe that the Church of Scotland remains an important vehicle for reaching the whole population of Scotland with the Gospel and, despite recent decisions, believe that God is still at work among us. We also believe that we can remain with integrity. 

“We urge others to join with us and to remain in the Church of Scotland, as we seek to restore and rebuild our Church.

“Our vision for this network of evangelicals within the Kirk will be developed over the next few months.”
