Affirmation Scotland offers a ministry of care, hope and advocacy to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (lgbt) Christians, their families and supporters. It also seeks to contribute to the debate within the Kirk on human sexuality from a progressive perspective.
Affirmation Scotland seeks to:
- create safe places and times for gay people and their friends to meet for worship, fellowship, and support.
- organise events that promote an inclusive church.
- provide resources to the Kirk and the lgbt community promoting the belief that God welcomes into God’s family all people regardless of gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
- speak out for the dignity and place of gay Christians whenever this is under attack.
- respond appropriately to approaches by the media for comment on issues related to the Kirk.
- be a presence – reminding the Kirk in a consistent way that the lgbt community has always been and is present within the Kirk.

“O, the difference of man and man!
To thee a womans services are due.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“Working women today are trying to achieve in the work world what men have achieved all alongbut men have always had the help of a woman at home who took care of all the other details of living! Today the working woman is also that woman at home, and without support services in the workplace and a respect for the work women do within and outside the home, the attempt to do both is taking its tollon women, on men, and on our children.”
—Jeanne Elium (20th century)
“It seems I impregnated Marge
So I do rather feel, by and large,
Some cash should be tendered
For services rendered,
But I cant quite decide what to charge.”
