Pete Evans started the meeting by leading us in a quiz about the Parish, our boundaries and neighbouring parishes. It was fun and also a great reminder of who we serve. He read from the Church of England official PCC member booklet about a PCC members' role. They liken it to a life boat crew; our 'crew' is here to serve others who are not on our team. We looked at educational settings with our parish and then prayed for the parish as a whole and especially for those who are within the educational settings, such as staff and children.
Dan and Angel shared the good news that there will be provision for children on the fourth Sunday each month from January 2024.The PCC was pleased about this and discussed a potential name for this group as it includes all the children across the different ages.
We discussed different days, times and means to pray regularly and intentionally for our children, families and young people. This is in line with the Church of England’s initiative on increasing the numbers in these groups.
Dan told us we were still waiting for a quote and plans for a new Communion table.
The meeting finished with a fun time participating in an escape room activity. Thank you to Nicola Caveney for all her work organising this!
The next meeting is on Monday 15th Jan.
