General Council 42 Remits

Download Remits 1 - 4 PowerPoint from Kim Shantz

It is vitally important that every presbytery cast a vote on all eight remits, as an absolute majority is needed for a remit to pass, not just a majority of those who vote. If an absolute majority of presbyteries pass a remit (plus an absolute majority of pastoral charges for each of the five sent to them), the remits will then go to General Council 43 for approval in 2018, to be held in Oshawa, Ontario.

Please note: If a Presbytery / Official Board does not vote, that is considered a vote AGAINST the remit question.

Important remit deadlines

 Remits 1, 2, 3, and 4 results must be received by June 30, 2017.
