General Church Meeting
This will be held at church on Sunday 20th March beginning at 4:00pm. The meeting will then be followed by a faith tea and the evening service (6:30pm), which will be led by Keith.
The General Church Meeting is a very important meeting in the church year and it is open to anyone who would like to come along. It gives us an opportunity to hear what is going on in the life of the church, our plans for the future and some discussion on important issues that matter.
The meeting is also an opportunity for anyone to ask any questions and for us to elect our Church Stewards for the year and representatives to the Church Council.
We are looking to appoint some new Church Council members at the General Church Meeting and would ask you all to think and pray about this. To be on the Church Council you have to be a church member and anyone wishing to know any more about this or to suggest a name, should have a word with either Keith or the Stewards ASAP.
