Parkdale United Church's Council

  • Responsible to the Congregation, the Church Council is the decision-making authority of the Church. The purpose of the Council is to fulfill the Vision and Mission of the Church.  The Council oversees all activities of the Church in a manner consistent with the Church’s values.  It is structured so as to represent a broad range of Church interests and to facilitate communication within the Church.

 The Council is responsible, along with the committees of the Church, and with the support of its membership, for:

  • the spiritual well-being of the Congregation,
  • the management of the Church’s financial affairs, and
  • the administration of the Church’s property.

All of the committees and groups of the Church are accountable to the Church Council for their activities.
