Letter from the Presbytery Clerk
FROM THE PRESBYTERY OF MELROSE AND PEEBLES
TO ASHKIRK, SELKIRK AND ETTRICK AND YARROW PARISH CHURCHES
CITATION TO ATTEND MEETING OF PRESBYTERY ON 23 MARCH 2021 BY ZOOM
TO BE READ TO THE CONGREGATIONS AT MORNING WORSHIP ON SUNDAYS 14 AND 21 MARCH 2021 OR OTHERWISE CIRCULATED TO OR MADE KNOWN TO THE CONGREGATIONS BEFORE THE PRESBYTERY MEETING ON 23 MARCH 2021.
At a special meeting of Presbytery to be held on Tuesday 23 March 2021 at 7pm by ZOOM, the Presbytery Planning Implementation Committee will report that the congregations of Ashkirk, Selkirk and Ettrick and Yarrow voted in favour of the Basis of Linking of these congregations. Presbytery will then be invited to give its approval to the Basis of Linking. An appeal against the decision of Presbytery can only be raised during the Presbytery meeting, by a Kirk Session or member of the Presbytery, and only on certain procedural grounds.
The three congregations are hereby cited to attend the above meeting of Presbytery for their own interest. This means that anyone who is a member of one of these congregations may attend the meeting of Presbytery and may speak (but not vote) on the proposed Presbytery approval of the Basis of Linking.
If you would like to attend, the ZOOM invitation link can be obtained from your Session Clerk or Minister/Interim Moderator. It would be helpful if the Session Clerk or Minister/Interim Moderator could let the Presbytery Clerk know the names of those planning to attend to ensure that the ZOOM system allows admittance to the meeting.

Clerk to the Presbytery of Melrose and Peebles
