SIMPLIFICATION – SHOULD THE AVC HAVE FOUR PCCs OR ONE?
Late last year the four Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) of the Avon Valley Churches began having conversations about the legal and missional organisation of our seven Churches and their communities. These papers have been produced to outline why the proposal has come about and how it can be moved forward.
We would like to have responses and questions and ideas about these papers, ready for an OPEN MEETING of the Four PCCs, to which anyone is welcome, on Thursday, June 11th, at 7.00p.m. (The Meeting will be on Zoom, by internet or phone, and also live on Facebook – details to follow nearer the time). The aim of the Meeting is to hear what people think is good in the Papers, what is missing, and what needs changing. Please consider them prayerfully, carefully and openly.
Any responses, thoughts and questions you have before June 11th can be e-mailed to the Church Office – firstname.lastname@example.org
Members of the Sew Friendly sewing group in Hyde, have kept busy during lockdown by making face masks and have now been commissioned to make gowns for NHS staff. They will receive a small payment for each gown made.
So far over 40 have been made and they are working on another 80.
Member of the group and former NHS worker Gaynor Hammond said: ” We all just wanted to do our bit to help and we have a skill we can use to make a difference.
“We have all elected to donate the money to Salisbury Hospice. As a volunteer at the hospice, I know they will be struggling for funding this year.”
