The Bible teaches that churches should be led by elders. Chalmers has eighteen elders who provide overall leadership and serve in different ways through the life of the church.
Robin Sydserff, minister, leads the elders. The elders exercise leadership in the church in a number of different ways. They meet together fortnightly as a group with smaller groups of elders meeting to facilitate specific work. The different ministries throughout the church are 'elder-led' with specific elders appointed in an oversight capacity to each ministry. The work of the elders is co-ordinated by Alan MacKenzie in his role as Clerk to the elders.
If you would like to contact one of the elders please visit the Contact Us page.
Deacons assist the elders in their leadership of the local church by taking responsibility for the practical matters in church life. Chalmers has 3 deacons, with the elders considering further appointments.

Pastoral care primarily happens through Chalmers' small group networks. The pastoral ministry group provide care for people who aren't able to be in a small group or who need additional pastoral support
