Here you will find details of today's business before the 2021 General Assembly.

Today is the first day of the 2021 General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, which is meeting in Assembly Buildings in Belfast.

In a change to the traditional format of recent General Assemblies, it will meet for three days, with the necessary Covid mitigations in place. Only full voting members are attending in person this year, thereby ensuring the necessary social distancing required at the city centre venue.

While all sessions will be livestreamed, unfortunately there will be no public access. The attendance of the media, however, will still be facilitated.

Throughout the General Assembly there will be a live Twitter feed using the hashtag #PCIGA21 at @pciassembly ‚Äč
