Guideline Leaflet C15: Help I’m a Charity Trustee

All Baptist churches are charities.  In a Baptist church the Minister, Treasurer, Secretary, Deacons and Elders (if any) are usually the charity trustees (also sometimes known as managing trustees).  This leaflet (re-written in March 2017) offers information about their role as the trustee of a charity.
