Proposed Union between Kilmacolm Old and Kilmacolm St Columba
As the respective Kirk Sessions were unable to agree upon which set of buildings should be retained as the place of worship, a team of three arbiters was appointed from Glasgow Presbytery to make a recommendation to Clyde Presbytery. The arbiters visited Kilmacolm on 12 May 2021, and their determination has now been issued, a copy of which is appended below :
This recommendation will now be incorporated in a revised Basis and Plan of Union which will then be presented to each congregation for approval. Further details about the process for this will be available shortly.
