THE APCM THIS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18th 2020

You may remember that, due to the Covid-19 lockdown, the APCM which is normally held in April was delayed until October. It will now take place at 11.15 immediately after the 10am Parish Communion Service. As some of you will be worshipping via Zoom, we have made every effort to ensure that you are able to participate as fully as possible. Please say prayers that the technology behaves itself and that you are all up on the big screen and able to contribute in person!  Permission has also been given for anyone worshipping via Zoom to be counted as being present at the APCM.

 

We are grateful for your support with reading, leading prayers, and selecting hymns and worship music for services held on Zoom. We are also planning get the Sides Persons’ Rota up and running again.  Your help is needed!    Please let Caroline Bews, PCC Secretary, know if you are interested in continuing in any of these roles either in church and or on Zoom – by calling 07961 186008.  

  

VACANCIES – SAFEGUARDING OFFICER, CHURCH WARDEN, PCC MEMBERS

Mary Straker, Safeguarding Officer, and Pauline Cannon, Church Warden, are both standing down this year, after several years of service. I would like to take this opportunity to say how indebted we are to them for continuing through the last six months, and to thank them for their excellent ministry in furthering the mission of St Michaels and All Angels.

If you feel called to any of the above roles, and would like to know more, please speak with Catherine or Pauline, (Church Wardens), with Mary Straker (Safeguarding), or with me.

There are currently 4 vacancies on the PCC – a very important time with discussions ongoing for the future of St Michael’s and as we seek God’s guidance and adapt to take his mission forward during the restrictions for Covid19, please prayerfully consider if you might put your name forward. Our regular meetings are every 2 months.

NOTE: For all the above vacancies, please contact Caroline Bews, PCC Secretary, on 07961 186008 asap so that she can organise the appropriate paperwork.
