Governance as service by Kirsten Patterson

Between August 30 and 13 September 2023, Christian Savings held a national governance conference “Building the Church for Today and Tomorrow – What is Fruitful Stewardship?”. Our conference was designed to help trustees, elders and officers better understand their governance duties. We took a closer look at some of the key stewardship issues our churches and charities are facing in this climate.

This is a recording from the day session we held in Christchurch.

Kirsten Patterson provides an expert viewpoint on what governance is all about, key responsibilities and how best practice might look like in a church or charity context.
