About the Vestry

The Vestry is the church council of Old Saint Paul’s. It is here that decisions are made on behalf of the congregation. These can range from organising activities and managing finances to caring for property and planning for the future.

Under charity law, the members of the Vestry are the Trustees of the church and are responsible for carrying out all statutory and canonical obligations.

How you can get involved

Vestry members are elected at our Annual General Meeting (AGM). Vestry members must be members of the congregational roll of the church. They may nominate themselves and must be seconded by another member of the church to stand for election.

If you are interested in becoming more involved at Old Saint Paul's, please visit our Welcome to OSP page.
