This week’s newsletter – Sunday 23rd April 2023 and AGM attachments

Dear friends


Welcome to this week’s newsletter, which is in a slightly different format. As we have our Annual Vestry Meeting (AGM) next Thursday 27th April, you will find attached a copy of the agenda, the draft churches’ annual report, consolidated accounts for 2022, Estates report and MA Gift Aid Secretary report in preparation for the meeting. Anyone wishing to attend the meeting needs to please email Imogen to confirm their attendance.


Also attached is a Diary 2023 document, which provides a very brief overview of all events scheduled between now and December throughout the MA. As there are lots of AGM attachments, we thought it would be easier to put the events into one diary document for you! If you have an event scheduled and it’s not in the diary, please let Imogen know as soon as possible.


Don’t forget, this weekend is busy with the following events.

Saturday 22nd April 2023, starting 7pm.
