The Official Board of Bayview United Church is now called the Church Council and is the decision-making body for the congregation. It is responsible for the spiritual, financial, structural, and social health of the church. The Council is comprised of approximately 15 members of the congregation including the treasurer, chairperson, and team leaders. The Council is responsible to the congregation as major decisions on matters of staffing, property, and budgets ultimately require congregational approval.

The Council meets for about two hours once a month from September to June.
