2021 Assembly to be Online

Thursday January 7 2021

The online General Assembly in an empty Assembly Hall in October 2020

The 2021 General Assembly of the Church of Scotland will take place online, it has been confirmed.

The Assembly will open on Saturday May 22 as planned, but Commissioners will join the proceedings remotely, speaking and voting through videoconferencing technology.

Last year’s General Assembly was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak, although a ceremony was held in a near-empty hall to install the Rt Rev Dr Martin Fair as Moderator. That was followed by an online Commission of Assembly in July and a short General Assembly in October.

Baron Wallace of Tankerness has been announced as Moderator-Designate to this year’s Assembly. Details of the timetable and any fringe events will be announced later.
