Senior Minister's Report to AGM

On Sunday March 12 our Church had our AGM. It’s important for every member to know what happens at the Church AGM so that you can pray for our church, and so that you can take up the opportunities raised at the AGM to serve in the growth of our church. Here is the link so you can read the full report presented by Graeme at the AGM

We elected Wardens for 2017. Thank you Ken Holder, Corey Matthews and Dave Staker for being willing to serve us in this way.

We elected a Parish Council. Thank you Andrew Burton, Justin Coleman, Yvonne Kinch, Marcus Swansborough, Jono Lee and Elissa Coleman for being willing to lead and serve in this ministry. If you have suggestions for how our church can grow in faithfulness and service, and how you might be willing to serve, please talk with any of these members of Parish Council.

Peter Farmer will represent our church at Synod; Tammy Holder will serve us by continuing to be our Safe Ministry Representative.  (Thank you, Peter and Tammy)

The Full Audited Financial Statements were presented and copies are available at church. The quick summary is that our members were wonderfully generous in 2016, that we finished the year only $1470 behind budget (so our church gave 99% of what was required to pay for church expenses last year!) This is a very good result last year, and we are very thankful to God who provides through your generosity.

Our Mission week is coming in 2 weeks, which will incur a number of outreach resource expenses. Our giving Year to date is approx. $5,000 behind budget. Can we please commend to you the ministry of giving to our church’s outreach at this time. We plan to visit every home in Rouse Hill with brochures about our church and Easter invitations during the mission week – resourcing this will cost approx. $2500, plus feeding the mission team. (Account details: BSB: 032 111  Account No. 249382)  Please pray that this mission outreach is effective and please pray about joining the team for this door-knocking and visitation campaign during March 26 – April 2.
