What is the relationship between the church and the state in the UK?
In England, there is a constitutional link between Church and State; the official Church is the Church of England, and the monarch is the head of the Church.
In Scotland, the national Church is the Presbyterian Church of Scotland, which is governed by ministers and elders.
There is no established Church in Wales or Northern Ireland.
Though England and Scotland have official state churches, everyone has the right to choose his or her own religion, or to have none at all.
