The Scottish Episcopal Church is diverse in its tradition, outlook and culture. Such diversity enriches the Church and is expressed in warm relationships of mutual respect for one another.
Firmly rooted in the life of Scotland and part of its rich history, the Scottish Episcopal Church is also deeply committed to its membership of the world-wide Anglican Communion, which is a family of over 70 million Christians in more than 160 countries.
The Scottish Episcopal Church is a Province of the Anglican Communion. Within the Province there are seven areas (known as Dioceses) which cover mainland Scotland and the Islands. Each Diocese is overseen by a Bishop.
The Dioceses are: Aberdeen & Orkney; Argyll & The Isles; Edinburgh; Glasgow& Galloway; Brechin; Moray, Ross & Caithness and St Andrews, Dunkeld & Dunblane.
The ABC Saints churches are in the Diocese of St Andrews, Dunkeld & Dunblane
