Synod – Overseas Committee

We hear from the Overseas Committee that the Scottish Episcopal Church is supporting training in West Africa, including paying University Fees and student bursaries.

So, we are paying for university education for African Dicoeses which are growing and apparently full of life. We are not paying for such training or university degrees for people from Scotland.

And then we wonder why there is decline in parts of the Scottish church and why it is hard to attract clergy for the future.
