The church has chosen a group of ordained Elders who, guided and inspired by the Spirit, meet regularly to lead the church. The group plans strategically and sets up small groups to lead specific initiatives. They have oversight of the vision for the church and its community in Highbury Vale, the worship, outreach, finances, infrastructure and pastoral concerns. They also lead the church in our concern for world mission and service.
Elders are ordained for life but can retire from the active eldership. We have several non-serving elders who still contribute a great deal to the life of the church. There are currently 18 serving elders.
Elders are available for ministry. Please contact any one of them and they will try to help through prayer, practical help or by signposting you to the minister or another elder/member of the congregation who might be able to help.
