History of the Church of Scotland

The Church of Scotland is a Protestant church of the Reformed tradition. It is not possible to point to a precise date at which it was “founded” – the Scots Reformation took place in 1560 but it was not until 1690 that it was finally settled that the church should be organized along Presbyterian lines. Even after that there have been moments of internal disagreement but by 1929 the majority of the movements had been reunited, the main exception being the body referred to as the Free Church.
