Easter Vestry: 27th April
Our Easter Vestry will be held on Sunday 27th April. Following our Morning Service we will share in a light lunch before beginning the meeting at 12.30pm. At the Easter Vestry, we hear reports from the previous year, reviewing God’s faithfulness and blessing since last we met as the General Vestry.
We also look to the future as we elect Churchwardens, Glebewardens and Select Vestry. This is also a triennial year, in which we elect parish representatives for a new three year period: 4 Parochial Nominators and 3 Diocesan Synod representatives with their respective supplementals. Parochial Nominators are the people from the parish who, along with diocesan representatives, form the Board of Nomination to appoint a new Rector if a vacancy should occur. Diocesan Synod representatives attend the yearly meeting of Synod on an evening in September, helping to keep the diocese on track for supporting and encouraging mission in the parishes.
The meeting is open to all, but only those on the Register of Vestrymen are entitled to vote. Please sign the list in the porch to assist with catering arrangements. Come along and play your part in the life of the church - no one will be under any pressure to stand for office.
The Pantry (A Helping Hand)
