Update on Union and Vacancy
Our congregation voted on the Basis of Union on 23rd March with 88 votes for, and 4 votes against the union. Presbytery will deal with the formalities at their next meeting on Tuesday 1st April in St. Bryce Kirk, Kirkcaldy at 7pm.

Members are cited to attend for their interest. Following this meeting, the Presbytery Clerk will submit documentation to the Law Department of the Church of Scotland and they liaise with OSCR concerning our new legal name and charity number. 42 days is allowed for this process. We can then proceed to a Service of Union. The date proposed by the Business Committee of Presbytery is Thursday, 5th June. During this time we will elect a Nominating Committee. By then we will be a united congregation, but the Nominating Committee should comprise of 4 members of the former Thornton congregation and 9 members from the former Markinch congregation.

One of the decisions to be made by the steering group is where the Service of Union will be held. This will be communicated in due course as there is a meeting planned for 6th April.
