Places of Worship in Scotland
Places of Worship in Scotland (POWIS) identifies, describes and illustrates all 11,000 churches, chapels, and other places and sites of worship in Scotland. Regardless of faith, denomination or present condition.Already our searchable database and new website are a valuable resource for specialist and general interest. More descriptions and images will be added. Scottish Church Heritage Research (SCHR) is a voluntary organisation and registered charity to promote understanding, interest and research in Scotland's rich and very diverse heritage of places of worship. We rely on volunteers to contribute text and images for individual sites and areas of Scotland which our website makes easily and freely accessible to the public. Visit the Map Database
The website is a work in progress as we transfer data from our previous website. Please contact us if you find any errors or if you would to contribute information or images at the email address below.
