The Presbytery of WA is responsible for pastoral oversight. In order to have pastoral oversight, it is important that relationships between members are developed and nurtured. This is done in a number of practical ways, through meetings, regional gatherings and networks, as well as through our staff employed to work on behalf of the presbytery. Presbytery meetings may include worship, business and resourcing sessions. Here you will find information on the latest meetings or past meeting minutes.
