15.4.2020 | General Assembly,
Due to the exceptional circumstances surrounding the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, for the first time in 180 years, the Presbyterian Church in Ireland (PCI) will not be holding its annual General Assembly this June. The decision not to hold the meeting of the Church’s supreme governing body was taken by ministers and elders meeting in a unique virtual Special Meeting of the General Assembly.
Given the current Coronavirus COVID-19 emergency, and associated developments, Presbyterian Moderator, Rt Rev Dr William Henry and the Clerk of the General Assembly and General Secretary of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, Rev Trevor Gribben, have written to all ministers across Ireland informing them that all congregational organisations and activities, including Sunday worship, should cease until further notice.
