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 :
A revised Basis of Union was subsequently prepared by the Clyde Presbytery’s Planning Committee. a copy of which is appended below:
The Basis of Union was approved by Clyde Presbytery at their meeting on 14 September 2021 and has now been submitted to the General Assembly’s Faith Nurture Forum for their approval. If approved, the Basis of Union will then be presented to each congregation for a separate vote on the proposals.
