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 patience!
