ADVANCE NOTICE - CONGREGATIONAL MEETING

Congregational meeting – Wednesday 5th December at 7.30pm in Church Hall.

This will be an important meeting with the Transition Support Group (TSG) who are responsible for overseeing the process of the Interim Ministry. This group of 6 people met with the congregation in October last year and with their help we produced a set of Aims and Objectives for this particular Interim Ministry placement. They are coming back again in December to see and hear what progress we have made since then. If, as a result of this meeting, they are happy to recommend to Presbytery that the Right to Call a Minister, be returned to the congregation (it is suspended for the duration of the Interim Ministry), then we could be beginning on an ordinary vacancy process – looking for a permanent Minister – in the early part of next year.
