Public religious subsidy of the week–6. £140,000 pa for a Church of Scotland chaplain at St Andrew’s University.

Manfreddi La Manna points out the Stirling University has found a much more economical and effective way of providing chaplaincies for university students from public funds with the university only providing accommodation for such activities and the denominations paying for the services of their priests. The University of St Andrews pays the full time salary of a Church of Scotland minister and for two support staff while other denominations (Catholic, Episcopalian/Anglican, Church of Scotland, Kingdom Vineyard Church, Orthodox, Muslim, and Jewish – two rabbis) provide their religious services to students out of their own resources.
