The Annual General Meetings for our Church will be held this month.
St Andrew’s AGM – at 11.15am on Sunday 17th March at St Andrew’s.
St Peter’s AGM – at 12.30pm on Sunday 31st March at St Peter’s.
Combined AGM – no earlier than 1.30pm on Sunday 31st March at St Peter’s.
At the AGM we will elect people for the office of Parish Council (St Peter’s AGM), Warden (St Andrew’s & St Peter’s) and Nominators (Combined AGM).
Wardens are actively involved in ensuring the proper management of property and finances on at least a weekly basis. They also assist in managing ministry and staff. We will elect two wardens for St Peter’s and two for St Andrew’s. Nominations are open now and should be in writing via letter or email to me.
Parish Council make decisions on how money and property should be spent and used in light of the church strategic plan. They also assist the minister and staff in directing the ministry. We will elect a Parish Council of 3, 6 or 9 people. Nominations are open now and should be in writing via letter or email to me.
Parish Nominators are the people who select a new Senior Minister for the Parish if the current one leaves. We will elect 5 Parish Nominators. Nominations are open now and should be in writing via letter or email to me.
I ask you to pray that God will continue to raise up Gospel hearted people to serve us.
But the most important thing we will do at this year’s AGM’s will be to continue our significant conversations about vision, finances and strategy.
This is more than a meeting; it is a shared opportunity to think, talk and pray. It is an opportunity for you to ask questions and become more involved in the decision making at church. Often, younger people skip these meetings thinking they are not relevant or not for them. I urge all of us to see that this is a meeting for us all.
I’m excited about all God is doing among us and hope you are too.
