Minutes of a church business meeting need to be accurate, clear and immediate. These notes provide helpful advice to enable all three aims to be achieved.  They consist of

  • Five reasons for minutes – the key idea is to record decisions not discussions
  • Five skills to develop – such as listening and attention to detail
  • Five ways to prepare – success is formed before the meeting begins
  • Five actions at the meeting – such as being ready to ask for clarification
  • Five top tips for production – including a range of simple ideas for great minutes.
