The Church Council is constituted to unite those who hold responsibility in the church in one working community. It has authority and oversight over the whole area of the ministry of the church,including the management of its property. Aims and methods, the determination and pursuit of policy and the deployment of availabe resources are its resposibility. Other committees may be appointed by it to address specific issues, but they remain subject to Church Council’s authority and oversight.
Council meets at least 3 times a year,usually in early October, January and June. At present there are 23 members plus the Chair. Other than those who are members ‘ex-officio’, they are appointed by the General Churh Meeting in March and serve a 3-year term.
