Kate Forbes

Kate Forbes joins us in interview, looking at the challenges and opportunities of being a Christian in politics. Ms Forbes is a Member of the Scottish Parliament for the Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch constituency and Cabinet Secretary for Finance and the Economy in the Scottish Government. Until she was elected as an MSP, Kate was employed as an accountant in the banking industry. In 2018 she won the "One to Watch" category at the annual Scottish Politician of the Year awards. A fluent Gaelic speaker, Kate made history during the previous term by becoming the first female MSP to give a plenary speech entirely in Gaelic in the current Scottish Parliament chamber. And as a member of the Free Church of Scotland, Ms Forbes has previously stated: “I am a person before I was a politician, and that person will continue to believe that I am made in the image of God”.
