Church Leadership Elections 2019

Whetstone Baptist Church is served by a leadership team made up of up to 12 members of the church and our three ministers. Elections take place each year when vacancies come up. Members will vote for this year's candidates at our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 27 March 2019.


Read on to find out more about the election process and which of our current team will remain in post and which are stepping down.

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 2019

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. This year there are six places for new CLT team members who will take over responsibility for such diverse areas as young church, buildings & facilities and mission.

CLT places 2019-2020

Four members of the CLT are part-way through their terms, so remain in the team and do not need to be voted in. Two members are re-standing after serving for a three-year term. There are six vacancies.

Find out more about the CLT members below who are staying and standing on the CLT page.
