Life & Work


It’s almost time to order next year’s magazines and I would like to thank all the current subscribers very much indeed for their loyalty and also to encourage some more people to subscribe to this very worthwhile magazine.

Life and Work is the magazine specifically for the Church of Scotland. Since it first appeared in 1879, it has established itself as the pre-eminent voice of the Church of Scotland. As well as giving information about life in the Kirk, it also aims to cover a broad range of subjects of interest to church-goers. These range from international affairs and British political and social issues, to science, ethics, the arts and health. The Life and Work of today is very different to that of 1879 and is now a full colour magazine with the additional value of a website to reach an online audience. However, the spirit and ethos of that first edition remain: to be a unifying force within the Church whilst offering an independent forum for debate from a Christian perspective.

One of the magazine's most important elements is reader feedback. The letters pages are among the liveliest in the magazine business, and are very revealing about general attitudes both within and beyond the Church. Letters are actively encouraged but should be kept succinct (but not without humour!), so that as many as possible can be published.

If you would just like to purchase copies now and again rather than subscribe for a full year, there are always spare copies in the Session House and all you have to do is to put your money into the tin there or give it to a duty elder.

If you would like to become a new subscriber, I’d be very happy to arrange this for you so please do
send me a message.

Thank you very much,

Sandra Haggarty
