Dioceses of the Scottish Episcopal Church
The Scottish Episcopal Church is the Anglican church in Scotland, part of the Anglican Communion and in full communion with the Church of England. Its existence, separate from the Church of Scotland dates from the late 17th century, when the Church of Scotland finally abolished bishops. There are seven dioceses, each with its own bishop. There is no archbishop: the bishops elect one of themselves as "Primus".

LGBT issues

The church's General Synod has voted to consider changes to its marriage canon, which could lead to the church being able to celebrate same-sex weddings.[1]
