Vestry & Ministry Teams

St. Paul’s Vestry and Ministry Teams are made up of dynamic individuals who serve the Lord by being liaisons to the Church, the staff and its leaders. These liaison assignments are distributed annually, please ask questions of the vestry representatives about each area and offer to volunteer!

The Vestry is generally responsible for conducting the business of the church. Currently Vestry comprises nine chair members, including two Wardens.

Vestry Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. (unless otherwise announced). Meetings are open to all church members in good standing.  In addition meeting minutes are available, after approval, in a binder in the parish hall.
