On 22 March a meeting of the United Reformed Church’s Mission Council accepted the resignation of Mr Lawrence Moore as Moderator-elect of the United Reformed Church General Assembly 2012-14.

Mr Moore is director of the Windermere training centre and was elected to the role of Moderator of General Assembly in 2010 at the Church’s General Assembly in Loughborough.

The United Reformed Church elects two assembly moderators who serve together for two years, one a minister and the other a lay person.   Church rules specify that a moderator of General Assembly serves until their successor is inducted. As a result Mrs Val Morrison, the current lay moderator, will continue in post until 2014. All existing moderatorial diary commitments and visits will be covered by a serving or past moderator.
