Ministry & Personnel Committee


Every congregation is mandated by the United Church of Canada to have a Ministry and Personnel Committee.  Members are elected by the congregation at the annual meeting and are accountable to the congregation through the Church Council. The M & P Committee oversees relationships within the pastoral charge ministry, particularly the roles and functions of paid leaders and employees. The M & P Committee may also be involved in setting expectations for work carried out by volunteers.  

How do you contact a member of the M & P Committee?

A list of members and contact information is listed below.  The M & P Committee also has a new confidential email address that is accessible only to the M & P Committee chair. Communications from that email address will be shared with M & P committee members.  The address is
