The Rev James Begg D.D. (1808-1883) was a minister in the Church of Scotland, and in the Free Church of Scotland from its foundation in 1843. He was a strong opponent of Roman Catholicism, Liberal Theology and attempts to bring unbiblical practices into the worship of God.
The James Begg Society, founded in 1994, is committed to the same Reformed Christian religion as Dr Begg – as formulated in the Westminister Standards.

The James Begg Society produces an email newsletter every two months. It is free for everyone who wishes to receive it.
Our email newsletter contains our latest news (such as information about forthcoming publications and events) plus an edifying article. Articles are drawn from our own publications, or from other Reformers, Puritans, Presbyterians, etc., or from modern authors of like faith.
If you wish to receive our email newsletter, please contact us.
In fulfillment of its Aim the Society operates a 'Psalmody and Catechism Fund.' Grants are made (as funds are available) of copies of the 1650 Scottish Metrical Psalter to help churches and families which desire to practice Reformed worship, and of the Westminster Shorter Catechism (our own edition) to churches, families and schools. We are able to distribute copies of the new and attractive edition of the Psalter produced by the Trinitarian Bible Society. Donations to the Society may be specified as for this Fund.
Enquiries from those interested are welcomed — please contact us.
This Website is closed on the Christian Sabbath (i.e., on Sundays).
We, as Christians, believe in keeping the Christian sabbath, also known as the Lord's Day. We also believe that God would justly consider us as not properly keeping His sabbath law if we enabled or condoned the breaking of it by other people. For this reason we close our website on the Christian Sabbath, which is held on the first day of every week (i.e., Sundays).
