MONTAGUE PASTORAL CHARGE
was formed in 2020 because a governing body was needed to develop church policies for COVID-19 protocol and reopening the church to the public. The committee is smaller and more flexible than the former Official Board, whose members voted unanimously in favour of forming this Executive Committee.
The committee has about eighteen members consisting of committee chairs and elected officials from both Hillcrest and Sturgeon churches. Helen Lockerby was elected Chair of the MPC Committee at the 2021 Annual Joint Congregational Meeting. A vote taken at the 2022 Annual Joint Congegational meeting formally replaced the Official Board with the MPC Executive Committee as the governance structure for the Montague Pastoral Charge.
