Church Leadership

Elders

Leadership is key in many areas of life, and Church is no different in that respect. Different Churches have different models, but at Dorchester Community Church we believe that the spiritual leadership is in the hands of the Elders. This is not a term relating to age, but is the biblical term used for ‘leader’, and the role is predominantly a servant role. We also believe Leadership should be seen in a plural sense. Gone are the days of the ‘one man band’ mentality. Currently we have 6 Elders, one of these being our Pastor. The Elders are no better or worse than anybody else, but their role is a key one in leading the Church.  That said, we very much believe that God speaks through all of His people, so we do encourage members to share their thoughts, concerns and ideas as to what they believe God might be saying to us.  The Elders are Roger Frapwell, Glynn, Martin, Paul, David & Chris. At Dorchester Community Church, the Elders have primary responsibility for  :-

  • Vision
  • Prayer
  • Outreach
  • Pastoral Care
  • Encouragement
  • Ministry Activities
  • Worship & Teaching

Deacons

As part of our wider Leadership Team we also have what we call Deacons. Their role too is very important. Deacons are to be people of faith and wisdom (Acts 6), and people who are actively demonstrating a servant’s heart. Their primary role is to support the Elders and to help to oversee the day to day running of the Church. Currently we have 6 Deacons.  The Deacons are Charlane, Mandy, Andrea Paul, Thelma and Joy. At Dorchester Community Church, the Deacons have primary responsibility for:-

  • Prayer
  • Publicity
  • Organised events
  • Christmas Events
  • Baptisms & Funerals
  • Supporting the Elders
  • Maintenance & Cleaning
  • Sharing the Vision of the Church

Charity Trustees

A Charitable Trust Whilst our Elders and Deacons form the Church Leadership Team, another important group of people are our Charity Trustees.  Elders are also Trustees.  The Charity Trustees are involved in matters of governance, finance, policy, safeguarding, room hire, health & safety and staffing matters. Their primary role is in ensuring that a right framework is in place from which the Church is able to operate both legally and within the parameters of the Trust Deed. To contact the chair of the trustees, please email chairoftrustees@dorchestercommunitychurch.org.uk thank you.
