The Reports for the Annual Parochial Church Meeting held on Sunday 24 April 2016 in the Soltau Centre, Stubbings have been published and are available in each of our churches and for download here>>.
Planning for the Future
This is a process that enables churches to discern the priorities God has for them, and to plan the activities they are going to undertake over the coming months and years.
A key part of the process is involving the whole church in identifying the vision for the future – a statement of what the church wants to become. The first statement of priorities and immediate practical goals has been prepared.
The Annual Report and Accounts of the Parochial Church Council for the year ended 31 December 2015 can be viewed here>>.
