ADOPT A PLANTER

The planter outside the Hilda Shore entrance was looked after by Mary Goh, but it is looking a bit neglected since Mary & Kim left.  If you would like to take this on and brighten up the entrance please speak to Elaine Phillips.        

CHURCH VACANCIES

The position of Church Council Secretary will become vacant when Elaine Phillips stands down at the end of August 2020.  Also David Armitage wishes to stand down as Church Treasurer at the same time. If these positions are not filled then Church Council cannot meet, resulting in problems in the management of the church.  Please speak to Elaine or David if you feel willing and able to take on either of these roles and would like to know more.  Also the position of Property Steward remains vacant following Scarthe’s retirement last year.
