Gaelic Hymn Book
Three Church of Scotland members, on Skye, got together to produce a booklet of modern hymns which have been translated into Gaelic. This resource extends the opportunities for Gaelic speakers and learners to worship in their own language in a new and living way. The book contains 100 hymns, many being translations of old and modern hymns originally composed in English, but also featuring a number of original Gaelic hymns. Titled Seinneamaid Còmhla (Let’s sing praise together), it is now available for purchase.

Fit For A King - 2014 Commonwealth Games Holiday Club Resource
In the lead up to the 2014 Commonwealth Games, Scripture Union Scotland wrote a bespoke resource, distinctly Scottish in flavour, to enable churches across Scotland to undertake a childrens’ holiday club during that summer.
The resource was titled Fit for a King, with a programme focussing on Jesus as a King with a difference. It included Bible teaching, dramas, games, crafts, songs, videos and ideas for a teen programme, all-age service and advice on training your team. Over 400 copies of the DVD resource were produced, and it is estimated that 20,000 children took part in a local holiday club, using this material.
