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 Geneva (10th - 13th October 2019); the next meeting will be in Gibraltar, from 6th - 9th March 2020.
