b)    regular attendance at Session Meetings and to send an apology if absent.

c)     supporting decisions made at Session Meetings.

d)    using skills and talents to share in the work of the Session as appropriate.

e)    showing a caring Christian approach to both the congregation and the whole community.

f)     sharing in Welcome Duty at services as required

g)    assisting at Communion as required.

h)    supporting the various organisations of the church - formally and informally.

i)     supporting financially the work of the church.

j)     caring for his or her district if or where appropriate

a)   by regular visits to each member in their home wherever possible.

b)   by praying regularly for each member of the district, by name.

c)   by sharing any difficulties with the minister.

d)   by sharing with the minister in cases of extra need, for example, bereavement, illness or baptism.

k)    Supporting and caring for the minister and each other in the work of the parish and in personal/family life.

Eldership is a holy task not undertaken lightly, but supported by personal prayer and the fellowship of the Kirk Session it is a truly worthwhile and fulfilling opportunity to serve God and his people.
