The Leader of the Scottish Christian Party Dr Donald Boyd (68) has been selected as its candidate for the Na h-Eileanan an Iar constituency for the General Election on 4th July 2024. Dr Boyd, the leader of the Scottish Christian Party since 2010, has stood in various elections in the north of Scotland and he accuses the SNP of having failed the Scottish people and the Highlands and Islands in particular. He said: “I am happy to represent my mother’s native isle, which I have known since childhood. The House of Commons needs to have a Christian Voice at such a time as this, and Western Isles voters have the opportunity to provide this.” Having written national Manifestos for the Christian Party, Dr Boyd has applied Christian principles to local, national and international politics. Voters in the Western Isles have consistently supported the Christian Party over the past two decades. If even 50% of Christians would vote for Donald this is likely to secure victory to give a Christian Voice promoting Christian values as the solution to the many problems that are destroying the foundations of UK society and damaging children. Dr Donald Boyd is a retired medical doctor with a long interest in public life. He and his wife have four adult children. As an Inverness Community Councillor he has been active and successful in planning and transport issues in Inverness. Having been an ecclesiastical representative at the European Court of Human Rights, Strasbourg, he has a wide knowledge of the interaction between Christianity and politics, which will serve the Na h-Eileanan an Iar constituency well in the next Parliament

Expect change in the next General Election

Many people in the UK who are paying attention, like us, must be despairing as one bad law follows another. Do they not see the damage they are causing to the NHS, to the education, to our young people, to our infrastructure ? What is most depressing is the lack of stickability of our leaders. We have had four Conservative party leaders in four years. Important policy issues are not addressed. Instead tinkering around the edges of policy seems the best we get. Bad laws get pushed through or fruitless inconsequential decisions are made which improves the lives for no-one and achieves the opposite to the intended consequences, 20 mph regulations in Wales imposed by Drakeford before his resignation , the Rwanda plan for asylum seekers, illegal immigrants and refugees where Sunak’s government is split and the controversial conversion therapy ban which was on Theresa May’s desk five years ago in 2018 is hugely controversial and when our religious liberty is at stake, so are many of our other freedoms. 

UK Ministers have stressed the need to protect religious freedom and free expression in any ban on conversion therapy from Westminster. John Mason MSP was one of only two MSPs in the debate to raise concerns about a potential impact on religious liberty. He urged parliament to be “careful about definitions” and “not attempt to interfere in freedom of religion or belief”. SNP colleague Alasdair Allan MSP added that any measures should not be about “restricting religious teaching or preaching”.

Responding to the debate, Let Us Pray, a campaign that opposes over-broad conversion therapy legislation, said:“Scottish politicians need to understand that their duty to protect religious freedom includes protecting beliefs they disagree with. The courts have consistently held that mainstream Christian views on marriage and gender are ‘worthy of respect in a democratic society’ and protected by human rights and equality law”.

“All this highlights the importance of continuing to pray and making our voices heard. Scottish politicians, and their counterparts around the UK, must not support laws that would prevent Christians from praying, offering pastoral support, or teaching the Gospel. Parents must be free to raise their children in accordance with their beliefs”


We must engage with what is going around us. Our opponents would relish any opportunity to stop us speaking truth as the gospel offends. But it also sets free, and he who is set free is free indeed. What we want is a focused honest and compassionate government who understands the urgency of the hour, the countries priorities and the ability to face the challenges and make good wise decisions for the majority of the people. The government should make good laws that stand the test of time and deliver benefits for all regardless of who gets the credit. 

We are encouraged to see Kemi Badenoch speaking clearly on difficult issues. We are encouraged to hear Nazir Afzal explain how as a child he was bullied in school but he turned it around to work for the CPS to prosecute those gangs who groomed girls in Rochdale because he wasn’t afraid to get to the truth. He is known as the voice for the ignored. There is a reason MPs talk about the silent majority in this country. It’s time this silence is broken and we all make an impact where we are.   

As a party, we feel too that our story is like the loaves and the fishes. We do what we can to continue to raise the standard according to the bible and let God do the miracles in our nation. Focus on the positive news, be encouraged and never give up. There is always hope. Please pray for our two candidates Dr. Donald Boyd & John Cormack and all those who genuinely want to see good and godly change in this nation.

Please feel free to call us on 01597 825151 if you can lend any support to either candidate or to the party’s work in the days ahead. If you would like to join the party, please email us on and we will get in touch. Thank you and God bless you.
