The General Trustees hold in trust for congregations around 3,500 buildings including churches, halls and manses, and approximately 13,000 acres of agricultural land spread throughout Scotland. The General Trustees also provide advice to congregations on repairs and maintenance and health and safety issues relating to these properties.

In recognition of the Church estate requiring rationalisation and improvement, the General Trustees recently carried out a strategic review following a membership wide consultation. We are now seeking a Chief Executive who will assist and guide the Board in supporting congregations in achieving their vision of ‘well equipped spaces in the right places’.
