Church Structure

Council Meeting Minutes

"The Manual of the United Church requires the posting of minutes. Previously, it included a provision (section A.6) that only required Conferences and Presbyteries to post minutes of their meetings on-line to the Conference or Presbytery website if they had a website.

However that requirement has now been broadened as a result of a further proposal which passed at General Council 42 in Corner Brook. This change came into effect on September 28th, 2016.

Section A.6 now extends the responsibility to post minutes to all courts of the Church including congregations, pastoral charges, and other local ministry units. In addition, a provision was added such that if the court does not have a website then it is necessary that the court post the minutes by any other means that makes them available to its members promptly."
