Court ruling on Scottish government’s worship ban imminent

Has the Scottish government treated churches unlawfully? A judgment answering this question will be handed down tomorrow by Scotland’s top civil court.

While England and countries across Europe kept churches open with appropriate safety measures in place throughout 2021, the Scottish government was one of the only authorities to issue a blanket ban on public worship.

A legal challenge to the ban was argued before the court between March 11th-12 by 27 faith leaders, alongside Canon Tom White, a parish priest from one of the most deprived areas of the United Kingdom.
