How we work

Clifton Methodist Church is a part of the Nottingham & Derby Methodist District and the majority of our work is supported by the Circuit & District.

However, independent decision made by the church are split between the church council and the leadership team.

The Leadership team is made up of 5 individuals who manage the church for example,   the minister and stewards. Who are appointed by church council. The leadership team made decisions that need immediate action but does not require whole church approval.

Church council is a meeting of the whole congregation. Typically meeting twice over the year, the purpose of the church council is to make decisions which may have a big impact on the church.
