Proposed Union between Kilmacolm Old and Kilmacolm St Columba
The postal ballot which had been scheduled to be held in February has been postponed meantime.
The draft Basis of Union which was circulated in January will now be amended in some regards, the most significant change being to clause 4 which will now name the set of buildings to be retained as the place of worship. This will be determined by Clyde Presbytery on the recommendation made by a team of three arbiters appointed from Glasgow Presbytery.
They have already begun their deliberations but will require to visit Kilmacolm, inspect the buildings, and meet with representatives of each congregation. It will not be possible for this to be done until the current lockdown restrictions have been lifted, so it is not possible to indicate a timescale for this next stage of the process.
The final Basis of Union, as amended, will then be presented to each congregation for separate votes to be taken.
