Explore Frequently Asked Questions: Discover In-Depth Answers to Your Queries About Restore Church”


Restore Church is committed to best practice in terms of oversight and accountability. We believe we have a moral and ethical obligation as well not just a legal one to ensure that we are in compliance with all legislation and legal requirements at all times both as a church and an Incorporated Association.
Who Is In Charge?

Restore Church is overseen by a board of Elders who are elected by the membership of the Incorporation. The Senior Pastor is given responsibility and freedom to lead the church in but is ultimately accountable to the Eldership. All major decisions are made by the Eldership in conjunction with the Senior Pastor.

What About Finances?

The Elders are also responsible for the oversight of all financial matters and ensuring that an audited statement of accounts is available each year at our annual general meeting. Our accounts are taken care of by our Treasurer and books can be viewed anytime by members.

Which Denomination Is Restore?

Restore Church is affiliated with Churches of Christ in NSW. All pastoral ministry staff are professionally endorsed by Churches of Christ and must complete professional development each year to remain endorsed.

Is There Accountability?

Yes, both locally and denominationally. Most issues can be resolved in house using Matthew 18. But Restore Church has a complaints procedure which can be used to address any serious issues with staff or volunteers, and of course we have a Safe Church officer where any relevant concerns should be addressed (see We are a Safe Church). Additionally, Churches of Christ have a Professional Standards Unit where any serious issues with endorsed staff can be addressed.
