The annual parochial church meeting is always an important event in the life of any church. It also requires a huge amount of work from many people and is rightly a demanding meeting at which we account together for the life of church we share together.
Significantly, it is at this meeting that Church wardens may be elected along with representatives of the parochial council. We, like many other parish churches, continue to struggle to fill all our vacancies. If you would like to consider this role it is not too late. Please do contact me so that we can talk about all that is expected.
This year it will be particularly demanding as we meet via the virtual medium of Zoom. However, I am confident that through our excellent PCC secretaries, together with other church officers, we will still be able to have a meaningful meeting.
As I am sure you can appreciate, this year’s meeting will be more limited than in previous years. Because of the nature of Zoom meetings it will not be possible to have involved discussions on items at the meeting. We ask therefore that you please read all reports prior to the meeting and send any questions or queries to the PCC secretaries at least 48 hrs before the meeting. All reports will be taken as read other than the Finance report and Rector’s report. Reports can be found at http://www.chichesterharbourchurches.org/ or from the PCC secretaries. Hardcopies of the Trustees report will be placed in the church porch.
Those unable to join via zoom may attend via phone. Contact the Rector for details of this.
Thank you for your understanding and support in this – and trusting to your prayers
