On Thursday, 6 May, Scotland will decide its representatives in the Scottish Parliament and its government for the next five years.

All voters will have two votes, one to elect an MSP to your constituency and one to elect an MSP from a regional list. If you have never registered to vote, or have moved home since the last election, you will need to register to vote for the Scottish Parliamentary elections.

The Evangelical Alliance strongly believes that there is a call for Christians and churches to be involved in politics, helping to shape the public sphere and bring the kingdom into the nation. 

Online hustings

On Thursday, 22 April, the Evangelical Alliance will be hosting representatives from five major parties to discuss areas we feel the church should prioritise in this season. The event will be livestreamed from 5:30pm to 6:30pm on the Evangelical Alliance Scotland’s Facebook page.

If you have a question that you would like to ask candidates, please send an email to c.​fox@​eauk.​org with the subject Hustings question’.

Our areas of focus

Here are six of the major themes that we believe are integral to our vision of Scotland now and in the future:

  1. Rebuilding: How can we rebuild better after the pandemic?
  2. Freedom: How can we safeguard Christian liberty, protect freedom of expression, and cultivate better relationships between Christians and politicians?
  3. Environment: How can we act as better stewards of the natural environment?
  4. Addiction: How can we best help those affected by addiction?
  5. Poverty: How can we provide for our communities and eradicate poverty in Scotland?
  6. Justice: How can we speak out for justice in Scotland and beyond?

In our party profile pages, we will highlight the vision of each of the main parties vying for parliament seats as it it pertains to these six focus areas, as well as what each party sees as its primary focus during this election. 

We encourage you to pray for your MSPs, the political process and incoming MSPs. If you have any queries on our election plans, please email scotland@​eauk.​org
