Re: Church of Scotland

Donald Young

Hi Glynn;
In Great Britain, the state recognizes or favours one denomination as the established church.  In England, the Anglican Church is the recognized church and becomes known as the Church of England. In Scotland, the government recognized the Presbyterian Church as the favoured denomination, and so it was styled the Church of Scotland. This recognition goes back several centuries when England and Scotland were separate, but what impact the distinction has today I don’t know. The Queen does have ties to the Church of England.
Hope this helps somewhat.

Happy Hogmanay,
I wonder if anyone can explain the relationship between the Church of Scotland and the Presbyterian Church and the Church of England. I am having difficulty understanding some of the things I am reading.
