Leadership Team

The Kirk Session

The Kirk Session of the Church is a body of serving elders; men and women who have been called by God to serve locally and nationally. The Kirk Session has oversight of the whole life and service of the Church within its Parish; and responsibility for the spiritual and temporal oversight of the Congregation’s affairs.

Its spiritual responsibility involves “leadership, nurturing the spirituality of the congregation and its members, caring for the spiritual welfare of the parish and parishioners, encouraging members to participate in the worship and life of the congregation, and promoting mission and evangelism in the parish.”

The session at Mossneuk consists of a minister, and several elders proportionate to the size of the congregation.  At Mossneuk we have an interim Moderator, Rev. Michael Lyall (who oversees the vacancy) our full-time minister, Rev. George Sneddon, and seven serving elders.
