The Business Committee of the Presbytery of Stirling is charged with overseeing the business of the
Presbytery. This involves ensuring that matters received from the General Assembly or a Council of
the Church are delegated to the appropriate standing committees to be dealt with swiftly and
efficiently. The Business Committee nominates the Moderator of Presbytery and allocates members
to the standing committees. Regular reports from the Treasurer are received and Business
Committee ensures that there is good stewardship of Presbytery's resources. In addition it brings
forward for Presbytery's approval the budget and accounts and ensures that all records are examined
and in good order.
