Church Leadership Elections 2020

Whetstone Baptist Church is served by a leadership team made up of around 12 members of the church and our three ministers.

The church leaders are the charity trustees, and are responsible for the governance of the church as well as its spiritual life.

Elections take place each year. Members will vote for this year's candidates at our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 1 April 2020.

Church Leadership Team (CLT)

Each leader is responsible for one or more areas of church life. Their role is to encourage, envision, value and support the ministry leaders and teams in our church.

CLT elections 2020

Each CLT member serves for a maximum of six years in two three-year terms. Each year at our AGM the members elect the new group of leaders. None of the current 10 CLT members have reached the end of a term or need to re-stand at this election. This year there will be at least three vacant places to be filled.

Find out more about the current CLT members on the CLT page.


Church members can nominate people using a nomination form from the help desk, or by email to Sarah the church secretary on


Nominations close on 23 February 2020. Thereafter the CLT speak to each suitable candidate to discuss if they are willing to stand, and will then produce a shortlist of candidates. Candidates are voted for at the AGM, and those voted for by a least 66% of the members present at the meeting gain a place.

If you would like to discuss any of the roles carried out by CLT, or you are interested in standing, but you would like to find out more, please speak to any one of the CLT.
