This year’s Annual Church Meeting (ACM) will be divided into two separate meetings: one this Sunday, 11th October, to deal with the business aspects of our church life as required, and another in January 2021 to be a Meeting of Parishioners where we can look more widely at non-business issues affecting the life of our church. Normally these would be held together as one event, but given the current circumstances, the Council has decided to do it this way. We hope that we will be back to having our normal ACM in April 2021.
This Sunday, 11th October, the 10am service will be 45 minutes long. The 11:15am service will be different. The normal worship part will be 40 minutes long and will lead into the ACM which should finish by 12:15pm. The ACM will be part of our worship. The services will have one reading and the Gospel, a 5-minute homily, communion, and two short songs. We anticipate that the ACM will only last about 20 minutes and will begin at the Community Notices section of our liturgy. We will take all reports as read and none will be read publicly. These were circulated in advance. There may be time for a few questions. We will only deal with what is necessary, such as voting for new Council members and a 2nd churchwarden. Please do pray about this. Candidates names must have been submitted by last Sunday.
You must register: email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can ring the church office on 93 417 8867.
As the weather gets colder, we are moving inside (entry is still via the back garden gate). The deadline for registering is 7pm on the Friday before the Sunday you plan to attend. Alternatively, if you attend on a Sunday you can register then for the following Sunday. If a service is full, you will be asked to move to another service. You are only registered when you receive a confirmation email.
Our Virtual Services continue to be available online here.
