General Assembly 2016
The Church of Scotland will hold its annual General Assembly from 21-27 May 2016 at the General Assembly Hall on the Mound in Edinburgh. More than 730 commissioners from congregations across Scotland and beyond will come together to take part in the event, a unique mix of debate, tradition and worship.
Very Rev John Chalmers Moderator for 2014-15 hands over to the Moderator Designate Rt Rev Dr Angus Morrison.
Over the course of the week they will be joined by more than 150 people from associated partners and other organisations who work with the Church. The public gallery is open each day for any members of the public who are interested in observing the proceedings.
First held in 1560, the General Assembly is the Kirk’s highest court, made up of commissioners who are generally ministers, elders and deacons, as well as youth representatives and around 40 international emissaries from partner churches around the globe. The General Assembly considers reports from each of the Church’s councils, discusses issues of national and international importance, and makes decisions that help set the Church of Scotland’s direction for the coming years.
