Church meeting:

There will be a shortened service on 23 Jan 2022 to allow for this meeting; the Minister and Elders look forward to seeing you. The meeting will start by 11.15am to ensure we finish by 12.30pm and all have an opportunity to join in the discussion. Some information which would have been offered at the meeting is shown below.

We have been asked by General Assembly, through Wessex Synod, to participate in their work on looking at the future of Ministry within the URC.  This includes how ministers are allocated to churches in the future.  Susan Lord will be facilitating our discussion and your contribution to this discussion would be most welcome.  

Church Organ update: we have successfully completed moving the organ from the Chandlers Ford URC and this can now be seen and heard in the church.

Financial report: a provisional statement for 2021 is available.  More details will be available later as the final accounts are prepared and the budget discussed with Elders.

Nomination of Moderators of General - Assembly 2023-2024: with General Assembly now meeting annually, a new single Assembly Moderator will be elected to serve for each year. Elders’ and Church meetings are invited to nominate up to two people, one a Minister/CRCW and the other an Elder. Only one nomination from each category can be accepted. Please note that nominees should not be approached to give their permission before nomination as this will be done through the synod.  If you have a nomination you would like to put forward, please talk to Andy Bevan who has the relevant forms, it should include a 100-word (maximum) pen portrait of the nominee which will be presented to Synod Meeting. Nominations must be received by the Synod Clerk by 9am on Monday 31 January 2022.
