Governance

We have adopted a Board – Team approach to governance with designated responsibilities assigned to five distinct Teams and a Church Board that acts to coordinate activities, and liaise with the wider church.  

The Church Board consists of a chairperson, a vice chair, a past chair, a secretary, the minister and one representative from each of the five teams. Most teams meet monthly and the Board meets bi-monthly. 

The five teams are:

Letting Our Light Shine (LOLS), with responsibility for overseeing the spiritual life of the congregation.

Keeping the Light On (KLO), with responsibility for financial operations, building and grounds.

Vision Team who, with the Minister, leads and supports the process of ongoing transition with the congregation.

Ministry and Personnel (M and P), with responsibility for ensuring healthy relationships between the staff and the congregation.  

Trustees, who hold in trust all church assets, manage the memorial fund, ensure that the building is safe and in good repair, and arrange for appropriate property and liability insurance.
