Format of the weekly Tuesday leaders’ meeting – 7:30pm to 8:30pm...
By Andrew Mackinnon
Last updated: 17th November, 2014
The weekly leaders’ meeting is held every Tuesday evening from 7:30pm to 8:30pm. By holding it every week, the volume of material that needs to be dealt with each week can be kept to a minimum so that the entire meeting can finish after just one hour (60 minutes) has elapsed.
During the first 25 minutes of the weekly leaders’ meeting, the leaders of Creche, Sunday school and Youth Group meet together in the locations where those activities are held and the leaders of the Bible study groups meet in three different areas of the main church building, corresponding to the Bible study groups of the Sunday 9:00am church service, the Bible study groups of the Sunday 1:30pm church service and the Bible study groups of the Sunday 3:15pm church service.
I believe that the most productive seating format for these leaders’ meetings pertaining to each different activity in the church is a circle.
This first 25 minutes of the weekly leaders’ meeting ends at 7:55pm.
After this first 25 minutes of the leaders’ meeting has elapsed, there is a 10 minute interlude for all of the church leaders to gather in the main church building, to greet each other and to organise the seats in the main church building in an appropriate row format to accommodate all of the leaders in the church.
This 10 minute interlude ends at 8:05pm.
The final 25 minutes of the weekly leaders’ meeting is an opportunity for any relevant announcements to be made and for the Senior Minister of the church to address all of the leaders in the church.
The entire weekly leaders’ meeting finishes no later than 8:30pm on Tuesday evening, giving all of the leaders the opportunity to travel home by around 8:45pm and go to sleep by around 9:00pm if they need to get up early the next morning at 5:00am.
