The PCC met on 13 July 2011 when the following items were discussed:
Deanery Synod – Diocesan Parish Share – considerable discussion took place regarding proposed changes to the apportionment of parish shares. The Diocese had prepared three different alternatives and the PCC voted on one.
Finance – Envelope collection down, not covering Parish Share. No unusual expenses. Fabric Fund will cover cost of outstanding items.
Christian Aid – Over £5000 had been raised with a fantastic £830 from St. Paul’s School. An excellent result in today’s economic climate.
