Intimation from Jim Anderson, Session Clerk

Central Cowal

Act 7 (2003) Section 10(2).

The Presbytery Planning Review Group calls a meeting of the congregations of Dunoon St John’s and Kirn & Sandbank to be held in Kirn & Sandbank Church on Monday 10 February 2020 at 7.00pm.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss and vote on the Union of the congregations of Dunoon: St John’s, Dunoon: The High Kirk, Innellan, Kirn & Sandbank and Toward Churches to form Cowal Kirk, Church of Scotland.

Please note: While the Draft Basis on Union notes that by 31st August 2020 the United congregation should present to Presbytery costed plans for the retention of either the High Kirk or the High Kirk Hall, the Presbytery Planning Review Group have confirmed that the congregation can present a proposal to Presbytery that includes the retention of both buildings.

I think we need to emphasise that this is a landmark event and that it is really important for members to attend whether they have been regular Church goers or not they are allowed a vote at this meeting and that is what is important. We need to be able to have a say in how our Church goes forward in to the future and any member attending will add value to the discussions.

Jim Anderson
Session Clerk
