The agenda and reports for this meeting will be sent to members of the congregation a week prior to the meeting. Committee Conveners and Secretaries of church organisations are therefore asked to submit their reports by Sunday 11 March at the latest.
This is an important meeting in the life of the church, as it provides information on how the church is being run and provides an opportunity for members to ask questions of office bearers on matters of interest to them. So please do try to get to the meeting if you possibly can.
The launch of Joan Huffman’s biography of Lady Frances Balfour, who was strongly committed to Crown Court and instrumental in raising the funds necessary to build the church in which we now worship, which was planned to take place on Wednesday 28 February, has had to be postponed owing to a delay in copies of the book being available from the printer.
Further details will be made available as soon as another date has been agreed.
The Minister will be running a class for those interested in joining the church on Saturday 24 February, from 10.30 am – 3.00 pm in the vestry. If you would like to attend this class, please give your name to the Minister or the church secretary.
This event takes place on Saturday 27 January from 12.30 – 7 pm at Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church. It is organised by Music in Bloomsbury and Organists Online. Throughout the afternoon there will be a series of snapshots of some the interesting events happening in the organ world. There are ongoing refreshments, displays of relevant material, and sales of CDs and books. For further details, see http://www.organistsonline.org/bloomsbury.
There will be no concert series this year, but we are already thinking ahead to our Tercentenary year in 2019, with a view to planning a very special series of concerts for that year as part of our celebrations.
To help us keep our records up-to-date, members are asked to let either their elder or the Church Secretary know of any change of address. It would also be helpful to have details of email addresses and phone numbers. These details are kept securely, used only for church purposes, and not shared with any other organisation.
This year’s AGM of Churches Together in Westminster will take place at the Salvation Army Regent Hall, 275 Oxford Street, W1C 2DJ on Monday 22 January 2018 from 6:30 to 9:30pm.
CTiW is supporting borough-wide eco-awareness by choosing Creation Care as the theme of its AGM. There will be a range of inspiring speakers and stalls with information and opportunity for conversation. So far attendance is confirmed of A Rocha UK, Shrinking the Footprint, the Anglican Society for the Welfare of Animals and The Big Church Switch, with several more leading conservation and environmental organisations in the pipeline, so this is sure to be a very interesting evening. All are welcome.
