The Business Committee is responsible for making all necessary arrangements for the Presbytery and Synod meetings in terms of venue, program and agenda. These arrangements include the provision of childcare and assistance with accommodation if necessary.
The Committee gathers reports and arranges for them to be distributed to the members of the Presbytery or Synod in an appropriate form: either hard copy or electronic.
The Committee also provides advice to the Moderator, the General Secretary and any other member of the Presbytery or Synod in regard to the presentation of, and the procedures for, dealing with the business of the meetings.
During meetings, the Business Committee can also operate as a facilitation team to assist with the re-wording of proposals to assist the smooth flow of business.
