Governance

Grahamston United Church is governed by the Kirk Session and four quarterly church meetings in line with the terms of its Constitution, which was approved in 2018, as a single congregation Local Ecumenical Partnership.

Kirk Session

There are fifty ordained Elders at Grahamston United with thirty of these being trustees and hence active members of Kirk Session. Men and women are equally represented. The Kirk Session meets five/six times a year to discuss Church business and holds occasional conferences.

Our constitution is unitary in nature with the existing committees (Finance and Property, Project, Pastoral Care, Stewardship) reporting back to Kirk Session and the quarterly Church Meetings. The committees consist of elders and members of the congregation. Further committees – Worship, Youth and Community, Eco, Mission and Outreach, Communication and Innovation – are in the process of being formed. Kirk Session believe that these will enhance the life and work of the church.
