Structure

Our goal is that people encounter Jesus and be sustained and grow in that encounter.

The Vestry

The Vestry are an elected church council or elders of the church. They are elected at the Annual General Meeting and typically serve for three years. The Vestry consists appoints a Chairperson (clergy), Vestry Clerk (vacant), Two Churchwardens (Vernon Douglas), Treasurer (Mark Moffat), and Safeguarding Officer (Nicki Horan). Other appointments are made to the Bermuda Church Society (Mark Moffat + Vacant), Diocesan Synod (Peter Nash, Shirene Fulton), and the Diocesan Youth Committee (Vacant).
