Jubilee Church is led by a team of elders. Neil and Hazel Pattison lead the eldership team.

We believe that God delegates His divine authority to men and women across all aspects of life throughout the world. In church life we are taught to recognise His delegated authority and defer to each other so that the church community can function in a smooth and healthy way. Men and women act in various leadership roles across the teams of Jubilee Church, governed by the eldership.
