Constitution


The Church is governed under the amended Model Deed of Constitution for Parishes Quod Sacra 1965 (usually known as the Model Constitution).


Publications


The church magazine is published 9 times a year and is either hand delivered or posted to all members of the congregation.


A weekly Order of Service sheet is distributed at Morning Worship, and also contains information of forthcoming events and matters of interest.


Finance


The last independently examined accounts for the year to November 2009 confirm that St Giles' and St Columba's South Church is in a very sound financial position through a combination of substantial invested funds plus considerable bank deposits.


In 2009 the church undertook a Stewardship Campaign which was very successful and resulted in increased regular congregational givings. A large number of members contribute by standing order or through freewill offering envelopes the vast majority of which are gift aided.


Our finances are managed by a finance convenor and a committee of 12 including the church treasurer who report regularly to the board and keep the wider congregation fully informed through the church magazine.


A financial budget is prepared each year and approved by the board and which has indicated for this year that the accounts will produce a surplus on our general account.
