Annual Church Meeting 2021

Annual Church Meeting

The Annual Church Meeting will be held at 7.00 pm on Tuesday 27th April on Zoom.

Please think seriously about standing for election as a Warden, Steward, or as a member of the Ecumenical Church Council. These positions are vital to the life of the church

If you would like to know more about what these roles entail please contact Janet or Clare Loughridge (j.loughridge@sheffield.ac.uk or clareloughridge49@gmail.com or Tel. 2584164

It is particularly important that we find two people to join the team of Stewards and Wardens to replace Muriel Roberts and John Booler, who have completed their 4-year terms of office. The posts are open to all members - Joint, Methodist and Anglican. People who have already served in these roles are most welcome to stand again.

If you cannot or prefer not to use Zoom, please let Janet Loughridge know and we will email out any proposals and nominations prior to the meeting and ask you to vote in advance without "attending" the meeting. You can also send in questions or comments in advance by email. 

Papers and reports will be sent by email and will also be available on the Annual Church Meeting page of the website.
