Re: Church of Scotland

The head of the Church of England is Queen Elizabeth II. Every ruler since Henry VIII had been head of the Church of England, except maybe Charles II (was he, considering that he was Roman Catholic?)

Hi Glynn

 

I believe the Presbyterian Church is the same thing as the Church of Scotland.  It is the official or conformist church of Scotland.  All other churches in Scotland are considered non-conformist.   The Anglican Church is considered the official Church of England.  Again other denominations are considered non-conformist.

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.
