Act 30, 1979 (XXX) – Act anent Dual Membership. 24th May 1979.

The General Assembly ordain that when members of the Free Church of Scotland are absent from their home congregations on the Church’s Overseas business their names may be retained on the Communion Roll of their home congregations but on a special “non-active” list which will be ignored for ecclesiastical purposes. Such names may be transferred to the normal list during the home-leaves of the members concerned. The “non-active” list referred to may include the names of deacons or elders who can be available in assessor capacity to serve in the courts of the sister-church in the country of missionary service at that Church’s discretion. The provisions of this Act shall not prejudice the procedure whereby a missionary on home-leave being an elder of this Church, may be commissioned as a member of the General Assembly by certificate from the Board.
