Student Church Guide for Scotland

Student Church Guides

Origin Scotland publishes Student Church Guides for university towns in Scotland, enabling students to better find their local churches. These are distributed free of charge via the existing Christian Union network in colleges and universities around the country. The guides currently cover churches in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee, Perth, Paisley, Stirling and St Andrews, with future expansion likely. An online edition is also available, as well as an iPhone app.

Student CU reps wishing to get more information on obtaining these guides should contact us well in advance of their freshers' weeks.
