Act 29, 2005 (XXIX) – Act anent Use of the Scottish Paraphrases in Public Worship. 25th May 2005.

The General Assembly note, in respect of the Reference forwarded by the Northern Presbytery to the General Assembly in 2004 and in the light of the Report of the Committee on Worship at present before it, that former General Assemblies of the Free Church of Scotland considered it inadvisable to legislate on the use of the Scottish Paraphrases in public worship, noting only that the Church’s position was to avoid uninspired materials of praise. Consequently the General Assembly advise the Northern Presbytery that the former usage and decisions of the Church do not provide competent grounds for making the use of the Scottish Paraphrases a matter of discipline
