The vote on whether to adopt a Unitary Constitution has been held back until the congregation are supplied with more details.    At present our Church works with a Kirk Session (responsible for spiritual matters) and a Congregational Board (responsible for finance and property). Under the Unitary Constitution, everything would be governed by the Kirk Session who would set up various groups.  These groups would then report back to the Kirk Session. Members of the congregation will be encouraged to join the groups. The vote will be whether to abolish the Congregational Board and allow the Kirk Session to take responsibility now for the finance and property of the Church.
