The Presbyterian Connection newspaper is a Christian newspaper that strives to unite Presbyterians from across the country through stories, reflections, interviews and articles, allowing us to share and develop our faith. It is distributed four times per year, free of charge. The Presbyterian Connection is produced by the Life and Mission Agency and was first launched in March 2017, following the closure of the Presbyterian Record magazine.
