Minutes of the PCC Meetings held via Zoom on Monday 26th April 2021
|1||The meeting opened at 19.05 with prayer taken from Ephesians 3|
|Online: Dawn Airey (Chair), Chris Gledhill, Carolyn Beck, Jeremy Bullock, Helen Cracknell, Heidi Ellson, Elizabeth Holbrook, Maria Seaman, and Fiona Clarke (Secretary).
|The Minutes of the Meetings held on 8 March 2021 were agreed unanimously.|
|The Annual Reports and Finance Reports and Trustee Reports for 2019 had already been agreed in 2020.
The Annual Reports for 2020 were agreed subject to the additional lines in the Safeguarding Report being removed to make it legible, and the Homegroup Report being amended to 4 groups until September and 2 groups since then.
The Financial Reports for 2020 were agreed.
The Trustee Report for 2020 was not available but was agreed subject to it containing the same information from the Financial Reports. FC to send the Trustee Report to CG to check before circulating it to the remaining PCC members. Other members to confirm acceptance subsequently by email to maintain an audit trail.
Acceptance of the Reports as above was proposed by CG, seconded by MS and all were in agreement
|There are two new groups that needed to be approved for Insurance Purposes:
o Restarted on Thursdays at 2 – 3 pm outside the Leisure Centre Park
o Two groups for six weeks
o Starting 4/5/21
o To be held during the daytime
o For Year 6 students
o At Redwell Primary School
All were in agreement
|Whilst it was acknowledged that the Live streaming of the service on 18th April did not go to plan, and was not available, it was decided that the guidance provided was good and was followed well.
Most felt that people filed out safely, although one saw a few people hanging back, presumably to chat.
For 13th June having the service outdoors is being considered so people do not need to wear masks and they can sing.
|7||Nominations for PCC, Deanery Synod and Churchwardens|
|Nomination forms will soon be sent out for electing new PCC members, Church Wardens and Deanery synod members.
As Church Wardens need to be re-elected annually, EH will be re-nominated for this position. However, a further Church Warden is needed.
Both Deanery Synod members are at the end of their Service period so two positions are available to be filled.
Several PCC members have either left or come to the end of their tenure. There are positions for up to six new PCC members.
|This is CG’s last PCC meeting as he will be stepping down from his duties as PCC Vice Chairman and as a Church warden. We are hugely grateful for all that he has done in these roles and for the church. He will be sorely missed but we wish him all the very best for the future.
CB will also be stepping down from the PCC and Deanery Synod as she has been offered, and accepted, a job in her home country at the end of June. We thank her for her Service and wish her well in her new venture. She also will be missed.
