Policies


Policies and procedures play a role in the governance and management of an organisation. An organisation’s policies become part of its culture, and impact strongly on the work of the church.

Our policies will continued to be reviewed and updated with input from church pastors, pastoral teams and members to help improve the polices and management procedures which are important in the governance of the church.
