While the Session often is referred to as the Spiritual Leadership of the congregation, the Board of Managers take care of the ‘temporal matters’. Made up of elected members of the congregation for a fixed term, they are accountable to the congregation at its Annual General Meeting. They are responsible for the maintenance of both the church property and other rented properties surrounding the church building, the finances of the church and managing its investments. Members of ‘the Board’, as they are called, is open to both members and adherents of the congregation. They appoint their own Chair. The Minister and the Treasurer are ex-officio (in this case, attending meetings with permission to speak but with no vote).
The Board meets monthly on the second Thursday of the month (except July and August).
