Weekly News 23rd March 2014/ Church Leadership




Over the next few months at St John’s, there will be a number of moves to develop our internal structures and see a wider range of people take on leadership roles within the church. More of that to come, when we get together in the Assembly Rooms in May for ‘Mobilising for Mission’.

Before then, we have our APCM, which includes elections to our PCC – the church’s governing body. Every year, a third of the PCC (4 vacancies) stands down to ensure that we keep our leadership fresh. If you have a heart for helping steer the vision of St John’s, then speak to Jon and he can share a little more as to what is involved. This year, we also have two Deanery Synod positions available, which gives people the opportunity to be ex officio members of the PCC. There is a leaflet in church explaining in some detail the role and qualities required for a Deanery Synod Lay Representative.

Please also note that this weekend is the closing date for adding your name to the electoral roll. You need to be on the roll if you want to stand for election to the PCC and vote at the APCM. See inside for further details.
