Who We Are

Our Roots

We are disciples of Christ, called Methodists, based in Scotland. We are welcoming all and especially our Methodist brothers, sisters and friends to COP26 (31 Oct - 12 Nov 2021).


As “Scotland Methodists COP26”, we understand that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding by John Wesley, we have been determined to make an impact addressing injustice, including climate injustice. The core of our efforts is to bring our limited resources, our faith and our hopes to the range of activities in which we’re involved.


Through all of our deeds, words and prayers, we hope to display the faith behind our beliefs.

Accommodation

Glasgow will be a busy city and accommodation may be difficult to find, especially if you have a limited budget. Churches across Glasgow have been workng together - under the umbrella of Glasgow Churches Together (GCT) - to identify affordable accommodation with local people forming the "human hotel" initiative. Unfortunately as a church we cannot offer accommodation.

"...we are to inquire, in what respects we are now God's stewards. We are now indebted to Him for all we have; but although a debtor is obliged to return what he has received, yet until the time of payment comes, he is at liberty to use it as he pleases. It is not so with a steward; he is not at liberty to use what is lodged in his hands as he pleases, but as his master pleases. He has no right to dispose of anything which is in his hands, but according to the will of his lord. For he is not the proprietor of any of these things, but barely entrusted with them by another; and entrusted on this express condition, -- that he shall dispose of all as his master orders. Now, this is exactly the case of every man, with relation to God. We are not at liberty to use what he has lodged in our hands as we please, but as he pleases, who alone is the possessor of heaven and earth, and the Lord of every creature."

John Wesley "The Good Steward" Sermon 51 

Please note that Wesley makes reference to humankind when refering to "he/him/his" or "man"
