Our Leadership

The life and work of our congregation is overseen by a Session  of elders who meet on a regular basis to pray and to consider the ministry and outreach of our congregation. Our Session of elders is structured into various portfolio areas of ministry and there are a number of sub-committees that take responsibility for aspects such as financial management, building maintenance, etc. A full-time minister leads us and an assistant minister takes responsibility for ministry to our under-30-year-olds. We also have a church secretary, a church officer, a caretaker and someone who looks after our gardens and our security on a contractual basis.
