Zion Parish is governed by a group of people usually called simply ‘the Vestry’, chaired by the Rector of the parish. These sixteen people are elected at our AGM in accordance with the Constitution of the Church of Ireland. Under charities legislation the Vestry are also the legal trustees of the parish. We currently await allocation of a registered charity number by the Charities Regulatory Authority.

The parish finances are managed in an open and transparent way by the trustees.
