The Kirk Session is the court upon whose shoulders lies the responsibility for the spiritual oversight of the parish. There is a Kirk Session in every parish in Scotland.
The Kirk Session is made up of a minister and elders, with the minister acting as moderator. Elders must be in full communion with the church and must be at least 21 years of age.
The number of elders is decided by the Kirk Session, at present our Kirk Session has 50 active Elders. Members of the congregation are grouped into geographical districts, each one of which has an elder allocated to it. The elder is responsible for maintaining contact with the members in their district and assisting the Minister in a pastoral care role, as necessary.
