Update from the PCC and welcome to our new Warden

2nd May 2020

Dear Friends

In normal life the last Sunday in April would have been our annual parochial church meeting (APCM) but as we can’t meet together all Anglican churches have delayed the meeting until the Autumn.

Some of our PCC and Deanery representatives have stepped down in April. Please join us in thanking them of their commitment and service to our fellowship.  The people who have stepped down are:

  • Sue Baker from the PCC
  • Peter Gowland as a Deanery Synod representative
  • David Lawton who is standing down as Church Warden

They have all been wonderful to work with and we will miss each of them.

The PCC is more than quorate and we will not be recruiting at this time to fill most of the posts. However, Pete Burt has been nominated and agreed to be our Acting Warden until we can hold the election. Pete has the full support of the PCC  and we warmly welcome him into the role.
