Dear AVC Congregations

In preparation for the Open Meeting of the Four PCCs on Thursday 11th, at 7.00p.m., Hyde PCC has asked for a summary of the large Simplification Document – there is now a link below to the Summary Papers, and I’ve included the full papers again as well.

The first part was drafted by Jeremy, and the second by the Simplification Working Group Members for Hyde, Andrew and Carrie, and it’s been edited by me. (so any errors or misrepresentations are mine!).

It may be useful to those who find the full documents rather indigestible.  (We originally sent out the full papers, because if we hadn’t have, the Working Group would have been accused of hiding the details – we couldn’t win on that one!).

I hope as many people will join in on Thursday as possible, either on Zoom, or live on our Facebook page and I’ve put the details below.

If you are not able to attend on the night, please feel free to send me any comments or questions you have, and we’ll try to answer them, either on the night, or by replying to your message.

Thanks, All – see you Thursday.
