Governance

Sackville Pastoral Charge and its Congregations use a ‘council’ format of governance.

Each congregation has an Executive Council made up of Elders elected by their respective congregation. Elders normally serve a three year term and are elected at the Annual General Meeting of the Congregation.

The Officers of each Executive Council come together to form the Executive Council for the Pastoral Charge with the Chair of the Executive Council being elected at the Annual General Meeting of the Pastoral Charge (usually in late February or early March).
