The Session

The session consists of the minister (teaching elder) as the moderator of the session and six ruling elders.

The minister of Victoria is a member of The Presbytery of Algoma and North Bay.

According to the Book of Forms of  The Presbyterian Church in Canada, a minister is a constituent member of the session in respect to his/her judicial functions, but in respect of his/her ministerial functions, he/she is the executive of the presbytery, and as such distinguishable from the session.
