Presbytery Report

Presbytery has been in recess since June and will recommence with a meeting on 4th Sept. when Rev Tanya Webster will be installed as the Moderator of Ardrossan Presbytery in succession to Rev David Watson.

At the June meeting Representatives of Milala Presbytery were present and addressed and sang for Presbytery

It was agreed that recognition would be made of service in all areas of ministry at 25 years, 40 years, 50 years, 60 years and 70 years. You might be interested of a few listed Andrew Taylor 59 years, Ross Mitchell 46, Alan Ford 41, Alan Ward 40, David Watson 30.

Approval was given for St Cuthbert’s to get a reduction of contributions in Ministries and Mission of £5397 for the setup of a community cafe and Notice Boards.

Provisional arrangements were made for a Conference to be held in  September to discuss the future of the church within the Presbytery. This has now been postponed until February 9th in West Kilbride Parish Church.

Congregations will be asked to consider all of their facilities including buildings and look at possibilities of working together – looking forward – who are going to be the office bearers in 10 or 15 years.
