Jerusalem & East Mission Trust
Anglican property in Cyprus is owned by the Jerusalem and East Mission Trust (JEMT), which delegates the administration of the property to a management board of trustees in Cyprus, called JEMT (Cyprus). The primary responsibility of JEMT (Cyprus) is management of church property in Cyprus, using the income realised from property rental to provide for payment of taxes, legal fees and ensuring provision for the future security of the property.
Current trustees are:
- The Ven Dr John Holdsworth (Chair)
- The Rt Revd Michael Lewis
- Felicity Christofides
- Ken Wiseman
- Chris Gibson
- Rob Findlater
- Mike Shearsby (Treasurer)
- Anetta Stylianou (Secretary )
The Trustees are responsible only to JEMT in Britain and not to the Diocese, except that the Diocesan Synod monitors the accounts and approves the appointment of the Trustees. JEMT in Britain consults with the Diocese, and in particular with the Bishop, on all decisions of importance.
