The Church of Scotland will join hundreds of other concerned people from across Scotland at Saturday’s ‘Scotland United Against Terror’ rally.

The rally, to be held at 1.30pm in Glasgow’s George Square, comes in the wake of foiled bomb plots in London and the attempt by two men to drive a burning jeep loaded with gas through the front doors of Glasgow Airport’s main terminal.

The Kirk will be represented by the Rev Dr Graham Blount, the Scottish Churches Parliamentary Officer, and the Rev David Cameron, Moderator of the Presbytery of Glasgow.

Mr Blount said: “"At times like these, when others seek to drive a wedge between our communities, it is more important than ever that we should stand together.

“As faith communities we stand with victims of terrorism, with victims of injustice and with all who want to build peace.”
