The Church Council has authority over the ministry of the church, including the management of its property, and is the main decision-making committee. Aims and methods, determination of policy and deployment of available resources are all its responsibility. In most cases, it will appoint committees which can initiate action but which will still need to report such actions to the Council, being under its authority.

Chair: Revd Pauline Crispin
Secretary: Mr David Kendall

    Can you help us?

    We aim to use our skills in the service of God and for the Church by looking after, developing and caring for our building and property, so we may provide a safe and secure environment for our members, our communities, our visitors and all who use the building.
    If you are good at, or even just interested in, managing, mending or looking after buildings and property, why not join us and share in the work and fellowship of the Property Committee.
    It's open to all and we meet about three or four times a year.
