small-GA-image-greenHave your say on the future of General Assembly

As some of you will be aware, the 2016 General Assembly appointed a task group to look at the future of General Assembly – that group has been asked to bring to GA 2018 proposals for running the General Assembly from 2020 to 2030. To do this it needs to consult widely and is actively seeking opinions or insight from around the Church.  In short, the task group wants to hear from you – and has devised a short online survey (which will not take more than ten minutes to complete) to help them more fully understand what the denomination wants from General Assembly.

All information, including direct links to both the online survey and a downloadable pdf for those without internet access, is available our web story.          Website:  Have your say on the future of General Assembly  
Please do complete survey yourself and send it to colleagues The task group are very keen to receive as many responses, from a diverse a range of people, as possible. – so please help them to  achieve this!  The survey is now open, and closes on 28 April. With thanks.
