The Council is primarily responsible for the oversight of the spiritual interests of the congregation. It is entrusted by the congregation to do its work because of Council members’ history, wisdom and commitment to the vision of the congregation and the SMP. All of the Council’s decisions – spiritual and temporal – must be discerned in light of this responsibility. The Council is ultimately responsible for the Spiritual Matters, Financial Matters, Pastoral Relations Matters, Proposals, Recommendation of Members to the Regional Council for wider ministry, Property Matters, Representation to the Regional Council, Reporting, Records, Reports from the Wider Church, Statistics and other responsibilities as laid out in sections B.7.4.1-12. The Council is also responsible for decisions in respect of the hiring and termination of employment of all personnel (other than members of the order of ministry, for which the congregation is responsible).
