Churches to host independence debates in Scotland

Seven discussions are being held in places of worship across the country over the next few weeks ahead of September's referendum.

The topic has previously seen heated confrontations but Christian MSP Murdo Fraser - who's debating at St Mark's in Perth later - tells Premier he's expecting a more respectful dialogue.

The debates, organised by the Evangelical Alliance, are hosted in the major cities, including Aberdeen, Inverness, Sterling & Dundee.

Dave Thompson who's the chair of Christians for Independence tells Premier he wants to engage with the many Christians in the country.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
