We are the Knights Templar Grand Commandery of Scotland, a Charity based in Scotland, which seeks to carry on with charitable traditions of the original Knights Templar.
We are the Founding Fathers of KTGCS and have a shared vision of what we want to do to help others within our Country. With us being Veterans and having our own disabilities we still strive to make a difference and if we can make that difference to those in need so can you. We aim to help and support our communities with issues such as poverty, homelessness and isolation as well assisting our Veterans, senior citizens and anyone in need of assistance.
We saw there was a great gap in the help available and we wanted to make a difference to the quality of life for the people we can help. Yes we might not be able to help everyone, but at least we can make a difference in the life’s and families of the people we do. With months of thought, several meetings and hours of research we wanted to put words into action, we wanted to make a real difference. So at 15.30 on the 05th July 2021, the order of The Knights Templar Grand Commandery of Scotland, was born.
Why “Knights Templar"?
We are all ex-serviceman of our Armed Forces. We have served Queen and Country without question. We were taught Loyalty, Love & Discipline and through our actions we earned Respect, Trust & Honour.
Through research we respected the ethos, vows, ethics of do no wrong, protect the vulnerable, and principles of the original order of the Knights Templar. We wanted to bring this back into service but modernise it. One of our oaths is a simple but important one,
“Never look down on ANYONE, unless it is to help them up”.
Our other motto of our Order is, "Non nobis, Domine, non nobis, sed Nomini Tuo da gloriam" translated to "Not unto us, Oh Lord, not unto us, but to Thy Name be given glory." We use this motto not in a religious manner but as a reminder of the old Templar order, so that we will never forget them and their values.
Our organisation will be open to anyone who shares in our passion for helping others. We are an charity without discrimination to age, religion, belief or faith, disabilities, gender, race (including colour, nationality, and ethnic or national origin) sex and sexual orientation.
If you share our vision for helping our communities, you will be welcomed with open arms.
