Thank you AJ. The answer to your question comes as a further two fold question. Firstly, We are a forty year old church (place of religion) based in the UK. London East, with a sister branch based in North West London. We had Trustees for this church established since 1972. Since that time all but one of our trustees have passed away. We have recently appointed new Trustees and want to make these new appointments legally official. Secondly, we have been recently told by the Charities Commission that we need to register with them as a charity. We meet charity commission criteria but need to know how this affects trustee legalities since the trustees yet to be appointed for the charity may not be the same trustees already appointed by church leadership who plan and approve church formalities. Our question is can we have two separate boards of trustees? One for Church issues and the other for Charity issues. and secondly What is the right and legal way forward?
I am beginning to think "just answer" is unable to "just answer". If this is the case I have no choice but to take my business elsewhere. I take it you will refund the £33.00 to my account?
Thank you Nicola
