SVCC Moderators

About our Moderator

As a gathering, baptistic, intentional community of koinonia drawing on insights from our anabaptist and baptist foreparents we are firm upholders of the theology and ecclesiology of the priesthood of all believers. So, all the members of the church take all the key decisions about our life together in community.

Each year our meeting of members appoints gifted people to serve in a wide variety of specialist tasks within the totality of our membership. We set aside one of our members to serve as Moderator.

The Moderator chairs the meetings of the church and of the church teams. The role of the Moderator is to enable us to discern the mind of Christ by moving the meeting on, helping to regulate the discussion amongst us and assisting all to participate in our discussion and decision making.

The Moderator serves for one year and there is not normally a second term of service immediately following the first.

We have no strict rules regarding the Moderator, but each year a nomination committee takes soundings and attempts to discern the mind of Christ within the membership to bring the name of a member to our special appointing meeting in the late autumn.
