Thank you to all those who are serving God and their local church community through the Office of Churchwarden. Churchwardens play a crucial role in the health and wellbeing of parishes.

Election/appointment and duties

Churchwardens are elected or appointed to Office in accordance with Section 33 of the Parishes Regulation Canon (a similar provision exists for The Cathedral under the Cathedral Congregation Canon). The duties and responsibilities of Churchwardens are outlined under Section 59 of the Parishes Regulation Canon.


Parish operational information and resources, including policies, canons, handbooks, procedures and forms are located on the ARC (ACSQ intranet). Churchwardens can access the ARC through the ‘Parish Council Team’ managed by their parish office. See more about accessing the ARC.
