Young People Wanted!

GA_2018_youth_reps_poster_smFalkirk Presbytery of the Church of Scotland has been invited to send a ‘youth rep’ (aged 18-25) to the church’s General Assembly, which takes place in Edinburgh from 18th-25th May 2018.

Youth reps from the church’s presbyteries spend the week together and far from being dull, everyone who goes says it’s one of the best weeks of their year.

Anyone interested in being a presbytery rep should download the Job Description and a Nomination Form, both available from the church’s website) have a read through and think about whether this is something you would like to do.

If it is, then please complete the Nomination Form and send it to your presbytery clerk by 1st Feb 2018. On the form you need to give some details about yourself and why you want to be a rep, and then get two different people to nominate you (one of them needs to be your minister / youth worker). The form also needs signed at the bottom by your minister. Putting your name forward doesn’t mean you will get chosen, but if you don’t put your name forward, then you definitely won’t!
