The AGM will take place on Sunday 29th April at 4pmin the church
Everyone interested in the life of the church is welcome to attend the AGM. At the AGM we will seek to celebrate the many activities the church is involved in and show our appreciation to all involved. It is also the meeting at which we will elect our church stewards for the coming year and congregational reps to the Church Council (Nominations with the persons permission welcome before the meeting)
The AGM is an opportunity to discuss the life of the church and its mission. We will be encouraged to reflect on our present worship pattern and have an open discussion about our two Sunday morning services — what pattern will aid our mission and serve our present age? What style of worship will meet present needs and encourage growth?
The meeting will conclude with a short act of worship followed by a 'faith tea'. There will be no evening service.
Everyone is invited!
