BUILDING PROPOSAL (From Revd Jon Salmon)
Thanks to everyone who voted about the strategic use of the building project.  
The result is:

61 votes for
13 against
2 abstentions


This provides a clear result.  I would be very happy to talk and pray with anyone who finds this result difficult.  It does give a mandate to move forward and an action plan will be produced as soon as possible.

Thanks too to those at the AGM who put their hands up to help with tidying up.  If you are willing to help please would you put your name on the list at the back of church.

Many thanks.
Jon

You can help by contacting us when you have a need yourself or when you suspect another member of the Church, (or even someone else), could use help or would appreciate a visit. Please do contact us if you have concerns.
