Channelkirk and Lauder Kirk Session
Eighteen Elders serve as the Kirk Session with our Minister as Moderator. The Minister and Elders form the Kirk Session, the principal court of the church responsible for spiritual and temporal business, through which all decisions are taken.
Teamwork provides opportunity for members of our church to become directly involved in the planning and management of our work in serving Jesus Christ. Membership of the five teams is open to any member of the congregation. Each Team has the authority to co-opt church members with particular skills and interests beyond the named teams, for example, Safeguarding, Publicity, Youth Work, Fellowship and Fundraising.
The work of our Kirk Session operates through teams with agreed remits and responsibilities devolved to each Team: Worship; Mission; Pastoral Care: Fabric: Finance and Stewardship.
