An important notice to all Congregation office bearers, Ministers and Presbytery representatives

We would like to advise all Presbyteries, Congregations and Ministers that due to the upcoming payroll system changeover, there will be a blackout period between 1 May 2017 to 14 July 2017 for any NEW Congregations or Presbyteries who wish to sign up to the Synod’s free Payroll Bureau Service. 

  • Please note that any existing Presbyteries or Congregations who are already the Synod Payroll and wish to on board new Ministers or Employees during this blackout period will be unaffected.
  • This period of data stability is required in order to allow the necessary parallel testing as well as a seamless end of financial year to be conducted.
  • The previously advised blackout period of 1 January 2017 & 30 April 2017 has now been lifted. The change in blackout dates is required so that the system changeover is aligned to end of financial year. 

Anyone who is ready now or wanting to come on board must advise the Synod’s Payroll Manager Marian Curtin by COB Monday 3 April 2017 in order to allow the necessary processing to occur by 1 May. 

Please direct any enquiries to Synod Payroll on or by phone on 02 8267 4288.
