The Church Council meets formally three or four times a year. It provides leadership across the whole range of local church life and is responsible for ensuring that Epsom Methodist Church’s affairs are managed, decisions taken and resources used in a way which integrates into one community and purpose the work of the ministers, officers and members.
The Church Council appoints a number of representatives to the Circuit Meeting, which is responsible, in particular, for ensuring that there are adequate ministerial resources in all churches in the Circuit.
Following a very well supported and positive special general meeting of the church on 25th November 2014, we are delighted to let you know that we now have a much fuller complement of leadership/stewards. We were delighted to see a number of folk willing to stand for election and the meeting gave their unanimous support. The members elected are Neil Dallen, Liz Frost, Andrew Jennings, Sharon Lam, John Riley, Elizabeth Smith, Harvey Morris, Ann Arthur, Zoe Grant, Carol Thorley, Rachel King, Betty Mickelburgh and Peter Thompson.
Some will be known to many, and others are less well known. It is hoped that we now have a team of people with a range of experiences and backgrounds to help EMC move forward to fulfil God's Mission for church. This is a very exciting time for our church, please pray for guidance for our leadership/stewards.
From January 2015, the former title of 'Leadership Team' is become the 'Stewards Team'.
