Archbishop Cushley is one of 10 figures who have each recited a line of a heartfelt message in a Christmas video from the Scottish Church Leaders Forum.

They decided to come together in recognition that many people are grappling with difficulties and uncertainties due to the impact of COVID-19. It is hoped that sharing the Good News about the birth of Jesus Christ will bring some comfort, hope and peace to those who are struggling.

The Scottish Church Leaders Forum was formed in March in response to the pandemic to speak on issues of mutual concern with one voice.

They are responsible for the ecumenical prayers published for every Sunday at 7pm.
