Strategy Committee

Strategy Committee is covened by Rev Dan Harper

The Strategy Committee, bringing together the remits of the former Appraisal, Ministries and Vacancy Procedure (VPC) Committees, met as required throughout the year.

At present there is also an ad hoc committee of Presbytery under the convenership of Rev Colin Renwick which is working out how the Presbytery will staff the parishes in the light of the present advice that the Full Time Equivalent Ministry posts across the Presbytery of Stirling will drop to 19/20 for the forseeable future, and therefore the Presbytery Plan needs alteration not only on paper but in reality, with congregations having to work closely together and with the prospect of various unions, linkagea and closures taking place.
This committee worksin conjunction with Strategy Committee.

A small sub-committee is still appointed from among the membership of the committee to act as a Vacancy Procedure Committee of Presbytery and to deal with any matters arising between meetings of the Strategy Committee.

Members of Committee were involved in attending conferences organised by Ministries Council (Presbytery Representatives, Crieff and Ministries Council-Council of Assembly Future of the Regional Church, Peebles).
The VPC sub-committee has dealt with matters in relation to existing vacancies in various parishes within the Presbytery bounds.
