Dayspring was formally constituted and incorporated in 2000 with the first AGM in 2001. Brian Stitt was the founding Director. It was intended from the beginning that Dayspring would draw on and serve people from all churches, and hence present as ecumenical in intent and flavour. For this reason the Guiding Committee draws on members of other Christian faith communities while members of the Dayspring Association and participants come from an even wider range of backgrounds.
In 2004 Brian Stitt retired as Director and Dayspring made a successful transition from the Founding Director to Brian Holliday taking the Director position. Dayspring attracted a wide range of presenters and Guiding Committee members. Beth Roberton became Director in 2011 when Dayspring celebrated its 10th Anniversary.
Currently Dayspring Community operates with gifted volunteer persons.
