Session Highlights

Eldership Elections

It was noted that eldership elections needed to be held this fall at Glasgow Road as all term service terms had now lapsed.  The Glasgow Road elders met with the Interim Moderator following the main meeting to set the wheels in motion for a November election for a total of four (4) elders, with details to follow. 

Elders from Brookfield and Hunter River Sessions which retain the life-service model were asked to advise as soon as possible if any wished to step down or retire from service at this time so that elections might be conducted concurrently with those at Glasgow Road.

The Year Ahead

Revs. Thomas and Cathy presented a proposal for a one-year co-ministry plan for 2019/2020, subject to review by Session in May 2020 and including some planned joint-worship opportunities through the year hosted by each church.  The plan was discussed and unanimously adopted. Please ask an Elder if you haven’t received a copy for review.

General Assembly Remits re Same-Sex Marriage etc.

It was noted that the actions of the most recent Assembly are now in the process of consideration by Presbyteries and require approval by more than 50% of Presbyteries representing more than 50% of the membership of the PCC to proceed to final consideration by the next General Assembly.  If approved by the 2020 Assembly, the changes would become the law of the church.  It was noted again that each local congregation would then have the freedom to retain traditional teaching and practice or choose to adopt a more inclusive approach.
