We have started off 2015 with a new Stewards team and Senior Steward. The team is made up of some old faces and some new ones! With Mark’s help and advice we are planning some changes to our roles and tasks. One of the changes you will all hopefully see very soon is to do with the services on a Sunday. Our aim is to have a representative from the team at each service to help the service run smoothly and to make sure that we have the time to listen and talk to the congregation. We are in the process of finding a supplier for name badges. Other changes will be announced in due course.
To help us in planning for now and the future, the whole team is meeting this month for an “Away Day”. This promises to be a lively and entertaining day – a report on the day will be published after the event. We met formally for the first time a couple of weeks ago and intend to meet on a regular basis twice a month. Each meeting will start with short worship and a minister’s slot to focus on what we are trying to achieve.
Over the next few editions of the 'Focus' magazine, the team will be writing profiles so that you know who we all are. I also hope to have a “Senior Steward” slot to keep everyone informed of what is going on within EMC. It is a real privilege to serve as Senior Steward again. We have a really excellent team and I am sure that EMC has some really exciting times ahead. If anyone has any problems/issues please let me know, I will be only too happy to discuss them with you.
