Governance Principles for Church Councils

I was recently asked to give a presentation on how general governance principles might assist Church Councils.

The forum was the Urban Mission Network, focusing quite specifically on Congregations of the Uniting Church.

But some others might find these principles helpful also.

The content is very introductory, and the emphasis was on small to medium-sized congregations.

Part 1 is below. Please note Parts 2 & 3 (also below) were presented several months later.
