2024 Church Council Elections Candidate Information Sheet

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 six members, Bill Bolton, Max Day, Rob Day, Heather Koroknay, Robin Ruys, and Ean van Vuuren who are half way through their term and therefore not up for re-election this year. Four nominations have been received for election to Church Council; three existing Church Council members seeking a further 2 year term; Nigel Clark, Wayne Prowse and Will Giacometti another 'new' nomination - Lavier Laurino de Mesquita Filho.

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.

Elections will be held online from Sunday  19th May to Sunday 26th May OR in person after our Sunday Services
