As part of a prayerful discernment process and discussion about sexuality, the General Assembly stated that as a matter of urgency, the Life and Mission Agency will provide a means for those affected by these decisions of the Assembly regarding the remits under the Barrier Act to express their concerns, views and pain in a safe environment, and that these concerns be reported back to the 2020 General Assembly before the report on remits is received and its recommendations considered.
Expressing views through this form is only one of a number of different ways people may express their concerns, views and pain. Additional means of gathering input, (for example, in-person visits with presbyteries) are in the planning stages.
Material submitted to the Life and Mission Agency is kept in confidence. However, some material may be quoted anonymously in reports as examples of sentiments we heard from the church on this matter.
To ask questions, speak in person about your concerns or to arrange an in-person discussion, please contact:
The Rev. Ian Ross-McDonald
General Secretary of the Life and Mission Agency
