Because we are not yet what God is calling us to be, we can’t do this on our own: it takes transparency and accountability. On this page, you can find out how to access audited financial accounts for the previous year, details on how and how much our ministry team is paid, and an explanation of how we keep children safe.
Before you join a church, you should be able to be confident that they handle their finances with probity. We aren’t perfect, but we have nothing to hide. Our most recent audited accounts may be viewed here. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
Ministry staff remuneration
Our ministry staff are paid in accordance with the levels set by the Anglican Diocese of Sydney, a partnership of some 270 churches. Ministers are paid the base stipend (for the senior minister) or 85-95% of the base stipend (associate ministers) plus a family loading of 5% where relevant. The stipend is based on working 6 days/week.
In addition to these stipends, they usually receive accommodation and various allowances, all of which are described in the remuneration guidelines available here.
Our Council and Wardens
Each year our church community elects representatives to help us pursue our calling as a church. These include a Council which governs our finances and property, and Wardens who administer them. They are crucial roles and we have been well served. You can find out about the responsibilities of Councillors and Wardens here.
