The position of Elder is a unique feature of the URC. Elders are members of the congregation, elected by the Church Meeting, and ordained for life, to serve the church. The Elders' Meeting, consisting of the minister and elders, exercises oversight of the spiritual life of the congregation. Elders assist in the conduct of Communion Services and the pastoral care of the members. Elders' Meetings are normally held monthly on the third Monday of each month at 7.00pm. At Hinckley, elders serve for three years and are then eligible for re-election.
Our Minister and Elders team at the present are:-
Vacant - Church Secretary
Richard - Treasurer
with Betty, Hazel, Rob, Christine T, Tony W, Jan and Sue.
