How are we administered?

Final responsibility in the assembly is not vested in any one person, but is the role of a group of men we call elders.

We believe that it is not appropriate for women to belong to this group since elders must teach and take authority, both being ministries that are stated by the Bible not to be a part of a woman's role in the church (see the Bible – 1 Timothy 2:12).

Each elder is part of that group by virtue of specific invitation by the other elders, who are recognised in the church as being spiritual men. This is not an elected group. The tenure of each elder is for as long as he is able, and has the confidence of the assembly, and as long as he remains Biblical and spiritual.With the eldership is a group of deacons to look after the day-to-day matters of the running of the church and the church property.
