The HAEBEA Executive is made up of all the Clergy appointed to HAEBEA along with any retired ministers and deacons who hold a role in HAEBEA.
There is an elected body of Six Lay Executive Members — three Methodist members and three United Reformed Church members. These Officers serve for a maximum term of 6 years.
There are also lay position holders called Executive Officers who hold such positions as Safeguarding Officer and Finance Officer.
Between Area Meetings, leadership and oversight of HAEBEA policy is exercised collaboratively through regular meetings of the HAEBEA Executive. The Executive Officers attend local Church Councils, Elders meetings, etc, and thus share with the ministers in inspiring the churches to contribute to HAEBEA's overall mission.
