Join this vital conversation

Take a Pew Church of Scotland The Moderator Rev Dr Russell Barr

Watch our latest Take a Pew video from Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum. Host Rev Neil Glover is joined by The Moderator of the General Assembly, Rev Dr Russell Barr, Rev Tommy MacNeil of Martin’s Memorial Church Stornoway and Deputy Director of Shelter Scotland Alison Watson to discuss tackling homelessness and the role Church Ministers play in helping improve the plight of  homeless people through Christian charity, God’s love and leadership.

Our pews will continue to visit Scotland’s iconic places, with invited guests ‘taking a pew’ alongside Church ministers to discuss topics such as wellbeing, homelessness and change in the Church. By signing up now, we’ll alert you when each new Take a Pew film is released and you’ll be able to submit your own discussion topic and suggest a location for the pews to visit
