Code of Conduct for Lay Leaders

This Code of Conduct for Lay Leaders (Code of Conduct) outlines the behaviours expected of persons who participate in the life of the Uniting Church in Australia as leaders.

It applies to all the Church’s lay leaders, including but not exclusively Church Councillors, elders, worship leaders, chairs of committees, team / activity leaders.

That is, any lay person who accepts a leadership role within a Congregation, Presbytery, Synod or Assembly.

It does not apply to those holding paid positions as it is expected that employment contracts will bind employees to the organisation’s code of conduct.
