APCMs 23rd February 7-00pm

Our annual meetings this year are in St James’ Church on Thursday 23rd February at 7-00pm. To nominate people for appointment please fill the appropriate form. According to law, nominations for churchwardens must be made in writing before the meeting; I ask that they be with me by 18-00hrs on Monday 20th February. Nomination forms are available from me at the Rectory or in church.

These are important meetings for the church especially this year prior to the Interregnum – please attend if you are able – St James is YOUR church.

At the annual meetings we elect people for the PCC and this year three people for Deanery Synod, forms are available from Lucy Mason or Fr Peter and must be returned to Lucy by noon on Sunday 19th February to allow her to prepare voting papers.                                                                                                                  Fr Peter.

Men’s Breakfast

The Men’s Breakfast will take place on Saturday 12th November and will begin, as usual with Mass in St James at 8-00am and then at the Rectory for breakfast and meeting, concluding at 10-00am.There will not be a speaker at this meeting but we will consider how to move on in the future with regard to speakers and breakfast when the Rectory is no longer available for us. This means it will be an important meeting looking to the future and future development, so please come along if you can.
