Elders have the care of the spiritual life of our meeting. They have a wide range of responsibilities, set out in Quaker Faith and Practice. Among these is the right holding of our meeting for worship according to the practice of Friends.
Elders serve our Area Meeting, which appoints them, and they meet occasionally with elders from the other Local Meetings. They also meet at least once a year with our overseers.
Elders also serve on a number of our other committees.
