The Finance committee is responsible for monitoring and controlling of expenditure.
There are currently 8 members who meet regularly throughout the year. The treasurer prepares quarterly management accounts and full statutory accounts are prepared at the year end. These figures are scrutinised by the committee and presented to the session meetings with comments or recommendations for action as appropriate.
The annual church finance budget is prepared each year and various other tasks are prepared on an on going basis by members of the Finance committee, such as maintaining pay roll records for our employees, preparing grant applications for projects, completing Vat reclaims where appropriate.
