Church Council Election Information

Elections to be held on Sunday 18th March

Phil Swain

The Turramurra Uniting Church Council is the main decision making body of our church and is comprised of up to 16 members nominated and affirmed by the congregation, each serving a two year term.

On Church Council there are four members, Geoff Leslie, Heather Koroknay, Rob Day and Lucille Taylor who are half way through their term and therefore not up for re-election this year. Eight nominations have been received for election to Church Council; four existing Church Council members seeking a further 2 year term; Ann Rogers, Joanna Drayton, Jon Fowler and Wayne Prowse and another four 'new' nominations; Alex Kitcher, Chris Bosch, Hannah Cutting and James Morgan.


As the number of nominations will not take council over the maximum size of 16, we will elect people onto church council through affirmation - where a majority of the congregation (more than 66%) "affirms" that this person should be on council.  What we are asking you to do is to consider the names above and ask yourself 3 questions:

1. Is this person a faithful follower of Jesus who is suitable to be appointed to this key leadership position as a Church Councillor?

2. Does this person bring suitable gifts, experience and/or wisdom which can be used to strengthen Council and assist the church?

3. Do we discern that God is calling this person to serve as a Church Councillor at this time?

At the election you will be asked to "affirm" each person through a simple yes or no response.  The information in this sheet might help you with your discerning.

The election will be a secret ballot and will be held after all worship services on Sunday 18th March.  (or in the 5 days leading up to that weekend at the church office or our special online voting system.  Pre or proxy voting will require you to give your name when you vote.)
