Act 3, 2022 – Delegated Powers for In Hunc Effectum Meetings of Presbytery

The General Assembly note that from time-to-time, Presbyteries of the Church have delegated powers to their Clerk or to a Committee of Presbytery to set a date for anticipated business requiring an in hunc effectum meeting of Presbytery. The General Assembly declare that a Presbytery may agree in principle to meet in hunc effectum for a specific purpose, while delegating the selection of a date, location, and time of the meeting to a duly appointed officer or committee of Presbytery. In such cases the Presbytery shall be careful to give information in good time to all members of Presbytery of the details of an in hunc effectum meeting so agreed or of the cancellation of such a meeting if it is no longer required. The General Assembly further declare that Presbytery Committees do not have authority to make decisions on behalf of the Presbytery but that they may act within any powers reasonably granted to them by the Presbytery.
