FROM THE PRESBYTERY OF MELROSE AND PEEBLES
TO ASHKIRK, SELKIRK AND ETTRICK AND YARROW PARISH CHURCHES
CITATION TO ATTEND MEETING OF PRESBYTERY ON 4 MAY 2021 BY ZOOM
TO BE READ TO THE CONGREGATIONS AT MORNING WORSHIP ON SUNDAYS 25 APRIL AND 2 MAY 2021 OR OTHERWISE CIRCULATED TO OR MADE KNOWN TO THE CONGREGATIONS BEFORE THE PRESBYTERY MEETING ON 4 MAY 2021.
At the meeting of Presbytery to be held on Tuesday 4 May 2021 at 7pm by ZOOM, the Presbytery Planning Implementation Committee is expected to report that the Basis of Linking of Ashkirk, Selkirk and Ettrick and Yarrow Parish Churches has received concurrence from the Presbytery Planning Task Group of the Church of Scotland. Presbytery will also be invited to set a date from which the linking will take effect, which is likely to be 4 May 2021. An appeal against the decision of Presbytery to implement the Basis of Linking can only be raised during the Presbytery meeting, by a Kirk Session or member of the Presbytery, and only on certain procedural grounds.
The three congregations are hereby cited to attend the above meeting of Presbytery for their own interest. This means that any member of one of the congregations may attend the meeting of Presbytery and may speak (but not vote) on the proposed Presbytery implementation of the Basis of Linking.
If you would like to attend, the ZOOM invitation link can be obtained from your Minister/Interim Moderator. It would be helpful if your Minister/Interim Moderator could let the Presbytery Clerk know the names of those planning to attend to ensure that the ZOOM system allows admittance to the meeting.
