Christ Church Central Leadership Team

There are 3 strands to the church’s leadership:

1. Church Steering Team

2. Church Oversight Team
3. Trustees

Each of these has a different type of involvement in the running of the church.

Church Steering Team

This team meets on Mondays is responsible for the week by week leadership of the church through Bible
teaching, pastoral care and prayer. They also act as the steering group of the Church Oversight Team,
agreeing the COT’s monthly agenda and implementing decisions made by the COT and Trustees.

The steering team is made up of:

● Minister – Tim Davies
● Women’s Minister – Fi Bronsdon
● Assistant Minister – Chris Houghton
● General Manager – Rob Dillon
● Ministry Trainee - Connie Waters

Church Oversight Team

The COT meets each month and is made up of church members who lead various ministry areas, as well
as the two internal trustees. As the name suggests they have oversight of how the church operates and
their role is to ensure that the church’s activities continue to work towards the church’s overall vision. The
team is chaired by Tim Davies and minutes of each meeting are held which are available on request to
members of the church family. The current members of COT are:

● Tim Davies – Minister (plus Gospel Teams)

All charities must have trustees who have legal and financial oversight of how the organisation is run.
CCC’s trustees are a mix of external people and church members. The trustees work with the Minister,
Treasurer and General Manager to ensure that the church complies with all of its financial and legal
obligations as a charity whilst furthering our vision to share the gospel in Sheffield. They meet three times
