Support Services Team
The work of this team is divided into three main areas:
Finance – with information for churches on general finance and accounting as well as guidance on taxation
Pensions – please visit the Pensions website for more information
Legal and Operations – providing information on a wide range of issues affecting Baptist churches, and offers guidance for charity trustees. Their work incorporates the work of the Baptist Union Corporation (BUC) who act as Property Trustees for many of our churches and also administer the Baptist Union Loan Fund. The Team is also responsible for keeping the Union’s database updated with current contact information for churches, ministers, treasurers and secretaries and for managing the Annual Return process.
The Support Services Team Leader oversees strategic management and relationships with associations in relation to these areas of work. This role is currently being undertaken by Richard Nicholls until a permanent appointment has been made.
