Being Single Being Christian

A resource for congregations based on the Mission and Discipleship Council's report to the 2009 General Assembly, 'Being Single: in Church and Society'. Singleness has seldom been a subject for theological reflection in the Reformed Church, and the report was offered with the conviction that a study of singleness uncovers much of importance for contemporary church and society.

Holy Communion

People share some thoughts from their own experience and perspectives on aspects of Holy Communion which have contributed to the understanding of the Task Group on Worship and Doctrine. The ideas here are offered to promote thought and understanding of an important aspect of our worship life together.
