The day will include,

  • What is a leader? Elder, deacon, trustee.  Biblical basis.
  • What are the roles & responsibilities of a leader?
  • What are the roles & responsibilities of the leadership group?
  • Relationship between leadership group and church meeting
  • Caring for your minister
  • Dealing with conflict
  • Your constitution/governing document – it is your friend
  • Introduction to charity trusteeship
  • Important topics – liability, conflicts of interest, financial management
  • Safeguarding basics

Feedback from previous Local Church Leaders’ Days:

“All the topics were useful and relevant – so glad I came!”

“I think all our leaders need to come on this training.  Even those who have been leaders for some time will benefit.”

“A great day with lots of practical stuff to go away and think about.  Thank you so much.”


Please bring along a bible and paper & pens to take notes.
