On Sunday 19th March 2017 we held the Annual General Meeting between the two morning services. There was a good attendance from the congregations. There were several matters of business dealt with. Carol Thorley gave a report of the year as Senior Steward. She is stepping down from the Leadership Team and being Senior Steward. The Leadership team gave her a plant and card to say thank you, and we would like to express our gratitude to her for taking it on suddenly and for all her hard work. Carol is being succeeded by Rachel King who was officially appointed by the meeting with Jane Williams as the Deputy Senior Steward. James (Jim) Bosley, Val Imms, Simon Jump, Kathryn Thompson, and David Williams were also appointed to the Leadership Team. Elizabeth Mulling Smith has stepped down and we thank her for her contribution over the years to the work of the church and Leadership Team. We also had a report from Richard about the Finances as reported in the Annual Report. The Annual Report can be found online here: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/charity-commission and copies are available in the EMC office upon request.
Mark finished with some comments about the plans for the coming year. The Minutes will be available from the Church Office. The format and date of the next Annual General meeting will be discussed and we will let you know the details in the New Year.
