A liberal & inclusive church, seeking God through beauty in our worship, honesty in our faith & doubt, & service in our community

There are three ways someone can join Church Council.

  • Ex officio members belong to council because they hold another position at Christ Church, such as church warden.
  • The majority of members are elected at the Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is held just after Easter. Elected members serve for three years and can stand for re-election if they are nominated again. One third of the elected members of council are elected at each AGM.
