This week Parish Council met and we wanted to keep you updated with what was discussed. If you want to discuss them further then please contact one of the Parish Council members found at the bottom of this message.
This week our devotion was John 15:1-8 and was a good reminder of staying connected to the vine and bearing fruit. There were many great reflections around the table as we discussed this passage.
In November 2021, the Parish voted at the AGM to have three foci for 2022. You can click the link below and see what those are. Parish Council took a look at those foci and were pleasantly encouraged by how far we have come as we almost reach 6 months of the year. We hope you can be encouraged too and see where we are doing well in focussing our energy there.
Vision and Buildings:
Parish Council are trying to determine how we can discuss the brick building and what we can and could do with it. However, the realisation is that we need to have a Vision about what All Saints is going to be about before we can decide how buildings fit into that Vision.
There have been discussions across the Diocese about the Mission Action Plan (MAP) model for doing this and we would like to do this with the Parish in June/July. You can find out more about that here.
On top of this discussion we are also looking at how we keep maintenance of the Church Centre so that we can keep this building nice and usable. More information will come out once we have compiled a list and coordinated some ideas to keep the buildings maintained.
Parish Council heard in the Co-Vicar's Report that we will return to communion in two kinds starting from Pentecost. There is more information in the newssheet about this for the next few weeks.
There are also two key things we are keen for you to know about:
If you have any questions about any of this then please see one of the Parish Council members below or talk to one of the Co-Vicars.
