The Deacons of Woody are volunteers responsible for overseeing the day-to-day running of the church and work with the Pastor and Elders to ensure the ministry runs as smoothly as possible. This involves making decisions about a wide variety of things from health and safety to finances to procuring equipment. Deacons are chosen by the church members and voted in annually at the church AGM (Annual General Meeting).
