Church Governance

Church Governance is a new discipline introduced in the year 2010 under mandatory requirement from commissioner of Charities. The main purpose of church Governance is to act in the best interest of the Church and be actively involved in the decision making process on policy matters. Another area of focus is to ensure the funds and assets of the Church are used reasonably for the furtherance of Church‘s objectives and activities.

The Governance committee ensures that the Annual reports and audited accounts are submitted on a timely manner to Charity Portal. The compliance on Personal Data Protection Act is another area supervised by the Governance Committee.
