General Assembly

norman mand 2019

Norman isn’t around this week as it’s General Assembly week.

As well as being our Parish Minister here at Granton, Norman is also Convener of one of the Church’s main departments – the Mission and Discipleship Council. Friday is a big day for Norman, delivering his Council’s report. You can watch the Assembly live video feed here and see a summary of all the Conveners’ reports here.

There is also a daily podcast here.

The General Assembly is a significant annual event in the Church of Scotland calendar. Throughout the week, commissioners to the General Assembly examine its work and laws and make decisions that affect the future of the Church.

People enjoy watching the proceedings for the passionate debates, special guests, festivities and large-scale worship.

The 2019 General Assembly is held in the General Assembly Hall on the Mound in Edinburgh. It opened on Saturday 18 May and will close on Friday 24 May. The public gallery is open for members of the public who wish to watch the Assembly.
