Finance Deacon

Biography

What are my responsibilities? I am “The person who looks after the church money and accounts” is the short answer – but, of course, there is a lot more that administrative stuff that happens behind the scenes.

The Treasurer will have responsibility for the payment of bills, banking, gifts and donations and keeping proper financial records. The Treasurer is part of the church leadership group and, of course, the church membership. The Church Treasurer is a financial ‘servant’ and should not act without authority.

Treasurers are not ‘financial directors’ who control the purse strings only allowing money to be spent on their favourite projects. The Treasurer must be able to manage the church’s financial resources ensuring that they are spent effectively, whilst preventing the extremes of either overspending or the accumulation of huge reserves.

It is the duty of the Treasurer to inform the Minister, Deacons and church members about the church’s financial situation on a regular basis. Sometimes it may be necessary to warn the church that a project must be reconsidered because there is not enough money to cover the costs. At other times the church can be encouraged to spend resources it has received on its primary objects through new activities and projects.

Testimonials

Thanks May and Pauline for a really good Family Service on Sunday 23rd October; it was informative and challenging, included young and older members of the congregation, the worship was great, and included an excellent (if shortened!) message from Pastor Richard on the subject of OUR dreams. And the dedication of Delson and Ester’s son, James Feliciano Perreirra too - brilliant!

I found this community at a time in my life when I was really hurting. I walked in the doors, and felt like I had just come home! I was welcomed with warmth, and encouragement, and friendship.
