The Placements Committee (Advisory Committee on Ministerial Placements) is responsible for the oversight of the processes that enable the placement of ministers and others in particular specified ministries.
Membership includes two representatives of each presbytery, along with a number of ex-officio members and others co-opted to achieve an appropriate balance.
Advice on placement processes can be accessed from the Protocols, Policies and Guidelines for Placements Committee document below.
Each month, the Synod Placements Committee, which consists of presbytery representatives, assists congregations, agencies and schools to suggest people to be considered to minister in their particular contexts.
For more information, contact our Relationships & Connections co-director, Sue Clarkson, on 03 9340 8834 or at email@example.com

- Minister fills in personal profile and submits to Presbytery Pastoral Relations Committee (PRC);
- PRC fills in Presbytery Comments page;
- Completed profile returned to minister for their information and signature;
- Signed Profile is submitted to the PRC who check to ensure it is completed;
- Profiles forwarded to the Placements Committee from the PRC.
