Church of Scotland

The Church of Scotland (Scots: The Scots Kirk, Scottish Gaelic: Eaglais na h-Alba), known informally by its Scots language name, the Kirk, is a Presbyterian church in Scotland. It is the national church of Scotland; however, while it is an established church in the sense that it is recognized as "the Church" in law and its rules, courts and assemblies are part of the law of the land, it is not a state church in the sense of being under the control of the state.

The Church of Scotland traces its roots back to the beginnings of Christianity in Scotland, but its identity is principally shaped by the Reformation of 1560. As of December 2013, its pledged membership is 398,389,[1] or about 7.5% of the total population – though according to the 2011 national census, a significantly higher 32% of the Scottish population claimed some form of allegiance to it (see Religion in Scotland).
