The Church of Scotland General Assembly for 2021 will be held online for a second year. The annual event will begin on 22 May with commissioners and other attendees joining together remotely from across Scotland and around the world.
In ordinary times the event brings around 800 commissioners and visitors to Edinburgh to debate on Church matters and the issues of the day. Details of the 2021 General Assembly are still being finalised and more information will be released in the coming months.
The Church of Scotland held a socially distanced General Assembly over two days in Edinburgh last year. Moderator Rt Rev Dr Martin Fair oversaw the proceedings at The Mound.
