North Korea – interaction with the outside world is not permitted, but foreign charities can operate so there are many Christians present and able to make a difference through their loving generosity. Pray that help will reach hungry, desperate people. 

Vacancy: Lay worker (families and community) 20 hours a week.

Teddington Methodist Circuit wishes to appoint a Lay worker (families and community) whose principal role will be to support the five circuit churches in delivering a range of projects designed to promote more active participation by children and their families in church life. Building on an existing foundation of well-established groups, but with the scope to plan fresh initiatives in response to identified need, the postholder will be expected to provide direct leadership and support to volunteers who help deliver these services.

For more details, please see https://www.tmcc.org.uk/vacancy.htm 

General Church Meeting Sunday June 30th, 2024, after the morning service The Church Stewards and Congregational Representatives to Church Council for the year starting September 2024 are elected at this meeting. Please consider whether you could become involved. Contact a Steward if you would like more information.

Nominations may 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*.
