• “Kirk” is a Scots word that means church.

  • We are Presbyterian, which means that we are a church that is governed by elders. In every local congregation, we have elders who are appointed to rule the church. When they meet, it is called a “Kirk Session,” which is an official and private court of the church. The minister of a congregation is known as the “Teaching Elder”. In the Presbyterian Church we are linked with other congregations through the formation of the Presbytery, which is a higher and public court of the church.

  • We are Reformed which means that we stand in the tradition of the Reformation that swept Western Europe in the 16th Century.

  • After 200 years of being affiliated with the Church of Scotland, the Kirk is now a congregation within the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

  • Our long range plan is to form a Bahamian Presbytery within the EPC.
