Organisational Structure

At Wagga Wagga Uniting Church, we encourage openess and transparency in our organisation. At the core of our organisation, we are governed by the members of the congregation. To ensure continued operation of the church, the congregation elects a church executive and congregational representatives called elders & leaders. We have created a document that outlines the structure of our organisation. You can download this document using the link below.

Organisational Structure



Elders & Leaders

Within our congregation, there are some members who volunteer to be responsible for the pastoral care and direction of a portion of the congregation and community. These congregational representatives are called Elders.

Also, there a members who volunteer to be responsible for the business and administration of ministerial activities and events. These congregational representatives are called Leaders.

Often, there is a blurring of responsibility between these two types of volunteers. More often than not, these volunteers are just ordinary members who bridge the gap between the members of the congregation and the church administration.

There are 25 Elders & Leaders in the Uniting Church, each are members from each of the worshipping communities. These volunteers are usually elected for a period of time between to 1 – 5 years and are elected by the church congregation as a whole.
