What is a church steward?
Church stewards are right at the heart of the local church.
Working as a team with other stewards and alongside ministers,
deacons and probationers they have responsibility for the full
scope of the church's life and activities.
This key role means that church stewards have the dual
responsibilities of leadership.
Which means that they need to,
- have vision and good planning skills
- be caring, supportive, and mindful of other's needs.
Church stewards work in a voluntary capacity, so their
responsibilities are balanced alongside their personal commitments,
family and social life.
If you are a church steward you will know that you rely a great
on your organisational strengths and deep reserves of
Church stewards are required to be members of the Local Church
(or supernumerary ministers stationed in the Circuit). Information
about the appointment, general responsibilities and particular
duties of church stewards can be found in Standing Orders 632-634.
Standing Orders can be found in Volume 2 of CPD
