Members of Presbytery represent all the congregations in the presbytery - a minister and elder from each - together with other Church of Scotland ministers living or working Outside the United Kingdom and elders appointed to ensure a balance of equal numbers of ministers and elders.

The presbytery meets twice a year (in March and October) over a three day period, being hosted by each of the European congregations in turn.

The most recent meeting was in Amsterdam (11th - 14th October 2018); the next meeting will be in Paris, from 7th - 10th March 2019.
