Church Government

Trustees

The church is a registered charity as this is required by the UK government. The church operates under a constitution registered with the Charities Commission. The constitution states that "The Object of the CIO is, for the public benefit, the advancement of the Christian faith in such ways as the Charity Trustees may from time to time decide." The trustees meet from time to time to check that the church operates within this objective and to agree the accounts and trustees report submitted to the Charities Commission.

Elders

The day to day running of the church is in the hands of Elders. They have a responsibility before God to ensure that the members of the church are cared for spiritually. 

Some of the Elders are also Trustees.

Deacons

The day to day maintenance of the church buildings is in the hands of the deacons.

Some of the deacons are also Elders or Trustees.
