Present: Norma McKemey, Margaret Williams, Angela Wirdnam, Martin Lee, Roger and Maria Morcumb
Christianity Explored – A very good follow up meeting was held in January and 5 of the 6 attendees are joining the Confirmation group with the 6th a home group.
Bible Study Group – This began very successfully running a five week course on the book of Esther. The group will reconvene on March 1st to study Ecclesiastes.
Partnership Christian Aid Project – The launch service on 24th February at Bath Road has been planned and Anna Potts will speak. Margaret reported disappointment in the number of entries for the logo competition. The winner will be announced at the service. Margaret will write a letter to all groups in the three churches asking each group to run a fund raising event to support this project. This project will run until the end of 2013.
Pet Service – this service is now to be included as part of an all age service on 7th July so is not within our remit.
Angel Ridge – Norma spoke with Gareth about the best way to contact and meet the people of Angel Ridge. He agreed this was difficult with no central meeting place, however, he suggested a residents’ barbecue on the green by the children’s playground. However, he also felt this would be better organised by residents themselves. He may well do this himself.
Roger will continue to take posters to the surgery to advertise events – need to take Messy Church poster.
Good Friday – there will be a walk of witness and an open air service.
Neighbourhood Prayer – Martin is to work out a strategy for informing people about this for our next meeting.
Date of next meeting – Tuesday 9th APRIL 2013, 7.30 p.m. in the Parish Office
