General Church Meeting Sunday June 19th 2022 after the morning service The Church Stewards and Congregational Representatives to Church Council for the year starting September 2022 are elected at this meeting. Please consider whether you could become involved. Contact a Steward if you would like more information.

Nominations should be made by email, post or phone to Sue Morrell* or by signing the list on the noticeboard in the narthex.  All nominations require a proposer and a seconder – you may nominate yourself, and I am happy to second any agreed nominations. It is an obvious requirement that the nominee has to agree to their nomination.

All current Church Stewards and Congregational Representatives need to be nominated afresh if they wish to continue.

Copies of the Agenda, reports normally presented at the meeting and minutes of the previous GCM will be circulated in advance to current Church Council members or may be obtained from Sue Morrell*.

*Sue can be contacted by email at teddingtonmethodistchurch@gmail.com
