Churches and faith groups are calling for the role of religion to be recognised in any written constitution for Scotland.
They plan to hold an interfaith conference on the subject in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire, in July.
The call follows an interfaith meeting convened by the Church of Scotland.
The Scottish government said it did not plan to change the legal status of any religion or Scotland’s churches.
