Election of Elders: The Kirk Session have decided in consultation with the Presbytery of Ballymena, to seek the election of FIVE new elders.
The final opportunity to vote for up to FIVE new elders will be today (31st October). You should vote for up to 5 of the names on the list (excluding those in italics and underlined), sign the paper and return to the voting box on one by next Sunday. The FIVE who receive the most votes shall be read to the congregation providing:
- They receive at least one third of the total votes cast.
- They are approved by the Kirk Session.
- They agree to their names going forward.
The list of names will be read to the congregation on Sundays 7th and 14th November, and a seven day period from the second Sunday will be allowed for objections in writing, if any, to be lodged.
Once the list is finalised it will be read to a meeting of the Congregation on Sunday 21st November. The names of those selected shall be presented individually to the meeting. A poll of the voters present shall be taken and if two-thirds of those who vote be in favour he shall be elected.
Training classes will be held for the elders elect and they will be conferred with by Presbytery prior to ordination.
Campaigners (Eagles and Junos) will recommence on Monday 1st November.
Congregational Committee will meet on Monday 8th November at 8pm.
Kirk Session will meet on Monday 1st November at 10 am in the Tullynamullan Room to count votes.
