Kirk Session

Use the links below to view minimal credentials for Kirk Session Attendees.

Now that KPC has adopted a unitary constitution the Congregational Board no longer exists, so various non-elder team leaders attend Session meetings in addition to Elders for the purposes of jointly discussing finance and fabric issues as well as worship and spiritual business. The Unitary constitution is structured as teams led by team leaders informing a steering group overseen by the Kirk Session who ultimately ratify all decisions.
