Members of the Regional Council
The Regional Council is the regular gathering of ministry personnel and lay representatives from communities of faith for fellowship, connection, inspiration and business. It replaces the regular gathering of people in Conference General Meetings.
All ministry personnel (active or retired) are members of the Regional Council.
The lay members of the regional council are members of the United Church who are not ministry personnel and who are elected by communities of faith on the following basis:
i) one representative from each community of faith with 100 or fewer members;
ii) two representatives from each community of faith with 101 to 200 members;
iii) three representatives from each community of faith with 201 to 300 members;
iv) four representatives from each community of faith with more than 300 resident members.
