Vestry - Governing Board

What is Vestry?

Vestry is the governance board of the parish, elected annually at the AGM. Currently we have 10 ordinary Vestry members, three Synod Representatives, the two Church Wardens and the Vicar. This group meets monthly and is responsible for the finances and buildings of the parish.  Vestry also oversees the employment of staff and all major decisions relating to the direction of ministry and mission. Finally Vestry is the group to which the Vicar is immediately responsible but offers support, wisdom and prayer for the whole parish.  We have a great Vestry and they are fully committed to the mission of our parish.

Ministry Oversight Teams

Our parish ministry and mission is organised around a number of Oversight Teams. Some are geared toward practical matters such as Finance and Works, others like the Pastoral Care and Outreach Team, Prayer Ministry Team and Children, Youth and Young Adults Team provide oversight, direction and coordination of the mission of our parish.  The Discipleship and Evangelism Team organise the AlphaLIFE Course, Lent Study Groups, Small Bible Study Groups and other opportunities to foster evangelism and spiritual growth.
