First Minister Humza Yousaf has praised the role churches and Christian charities play in Scotland as he send his best wishes to all those celebrating Easter.

In a video message, the First Minister said:

“My very best wishes to everyone marking Easter in Scotland, and around the world.

“I also hope that you have many memorable moments together with your loved ones, or within your congregations.

“With the end of lent, and the emergence of spring here in Scotland, Easter reminds us of the light of hope in times of darkness.

“With this hope in mind, Scotland’s Christian communities continue to be the light in communities across Scotland through, for example, their tireless work on the frontline of anti-poverty initiatives.

“From tackling homelessness and social isolation, to supporting families and the elderly in a cost-of-living crisis.

“Our churches and Christian charities also help to facilitate end of life care for our loved ones in hospices, they provide space for children’s activities, coffee mornings and community celebrations, and they welcome refugees and asylum seekers fleeing persecution and conflict.

“So, I’d like to thank the many Christian communities serving others generously this year and every year.

“You continue to contribute so much to our lives, to our diverse communities, to our strong tradition of interfaith leadership in Scotland.

“And, to everyone celebrating Easter this year, I wish you all the very best.

“Happy Easter.”
