Know the Word

Our small group Know the Word,  will be meeting at St Michael’s throughout February, on Thursdays at 7:30pm, rather than at the Vicarage. Please pass the word to others, and invite folk to join us … for good fellowship, prayer support and to encounter the living God as we read the Bible together.

Annual Church Meeting (APCM)

January 28, 2017

As from January 1st this year, St Michael’s & St Barnabas have become one parish (we were until then, a ‘joint benefice’), and as a result we need to elect an entirely new PCC.

So this year, our Annual Meeting will be held earlier than usual, on Saturday 11th March at 10am at St Michael’s. Over the next few weeks there will be nomination forms for deanery synod reps (2 needed), for churchwardens (2) and for PCC members (9). Please return completed forms to a church warden.

If you are not yet on the electoral roll, you need to complete an electoral roll form at least 15 days before the APCM to be eligible to vote at the meeting. Ask Sue W for a form.

There will be a bring and share lunch afterwards, so do bring some food to share and be prepared to share the washing up, too!

We want this annual meeting to be a celebration as we formally launch the new parish, and whether you are a new member of the church or an old-timer, please do come!
