Saint Alban's Church is led by a strong leadership team of five elected church members called the Bishop’s Committee. In consultation with the vicar (pastor/priest) of the church, they provide administrative oversight for the church and offer counsel to the clergy of the church. The Bishop’s Committee meets on the third Sunday of each month following the service. Meetings are open to members of the church. Committee members are elected to staggered three-year terms. The officers of the Bishop's Committee are the Bishop's Warden (appointed by the bishop with the recommendation of the vicar), Junior Warden (elected by the committee and appointed by the bishop), secretary, and the treasurer (the secretary and treasurer are not required to be elected members of the committee).
