Our Structure

Mersey Synod

Further to the retiral last year of Revd Dr Kirsty Thorpe, our minister since 2008, we have moved from North West Synod to Mersey Synod since Easter this year.  We must thank North West Synod for their support over the last few years.  Further details about Mersey Synod will follow soon.

Church Meeting

Major decisions are the responsibility of our Church Meeting. Any one who worships regularly with us is invited to attend and speak. Only members may vote, however. We have currently 128 members. Our Church Meetings are held quarterly, after the Sunday morning service.  

Church Officers

We have four Church Officers – Church Secretary, Church Treasurer, Deputy Church Secretary (Admin), Deputy Church Treasurer. All are appointed to the position annually.

Elders’ Meeting

The leadership of our church is exercised by the Minister working with a team of Elders who are elected annually by the Church Meeting.

Pastoral Support

Our Church provides Pastoral Support through informal friendships and through a network of Pastoral Elders and volunteers.

Teams

We organise our life together through a number of teams, as follows:

  • The Worship Team oversees all aspects of worship in the church.
  • The Finance Team oversees the financial status and control of our church funds.
  • The Administration Team ensures that the administrative and support activities required for the smooth running of our church are available.
  • The Property Team ensures that the church, halls and manse buildings are maintained.
  • The Premises Team is in charge of all bookings and servicing the buildings to meet the needs of our community.
  • The Fundraising Team organises events to bring us together and raise funds for our church
  • The Outreach Team looks to develop our relationship with the people of Wilmslow and the wider community.
