Act 28, 2009 (XXVIII) – Act anent arrangements for Ministers affected by Questions of Financial Sustainability. 20th May 2009.

  1. The General Assembly instruct Presbyteries, through their Pastoral Committees, to take responsibility for ensuring that regular consultation is engaged in with ministers affected by questions of financial sustainability. They further instruct that such consultation shall include examination of the ministerial gifts and full exploration of options matching these gifts including those identified in the report included as Appendix Three of the Board’s Report. In fulfilling this remit, Presbyteries shall seek the help and advice of the Panel of Pastoral Advice, the Home Missions Board and the International Missions Board as appropriate.
  2. The General Assembly instruct the Home Missions Board to give due consideration to the provision of financial assistance to ministers loosed from their pastoral charge where the ministry has been declared to be financially unsustainable taking account of the likelihood that such ministers will need to vacate their manse.
  3. The General Assembly instruct the Personnel Committee to bring forward draft legislation to the 2010 General Assembly in relation to circumstances in which a minister loosed from his pastoral tie where the ministry has been declared to be financially unsustainable might, by petition to the General Assembly, be granted a seat on Presbytery
