Searching by Presbytery

Fasti Ecclesiae Scoticanae, Volumes 1-7

Searching by Presbytery

 
In the Scottish Presbyterian system of Church government, a Synod has oversight over a number of adjacent Presbyteries; and a Presbytery has oversight over a number of adjacent congregations. Each congregation is organised under a Kirk Session consisting of a minister and elders.

Here the 83 Presbyteries of the Church of Scotland are laid out in two forms. First of all, they are laid out in the form in which they occur in the Fasti. This gives a researcher a general idea of which geographical areas are dealt with in each volume of the Fasti. But if you know already which Presbytery you wish to search, it is the alphabetic arrangement of Presbyteries which will be of more interest to you.

Read on to see how the Synods and Presbyteries are laid out in the Fasti. To see an alphabetic list of the Presbyteries go here. In both cases there are links to the text of the Fasti.
