The Ven Bill Jacobs has retired as Archdeacon of Charing Cross and SJP will be represented at the Eucharist of Thanks on February 17th 2015.
The Budget for 2015 was approved by the PCC, and Simon, our Treasurer, together with Penelope Turton presented an update on our Investment Policy. This is to ensure that our funds are ethically invested, and that, in keeping with our responsibility as Trustees, we maximise the use of our assets.
The Wren Project ‘where are we now’ and ‘practical next steps’ document was perused, together with updated Terms of Reference for the Wren Steering Group. Preparations were discussed for a community update meeting in the first quarter of 2015.
The PCC agreed that SJP would sign the petition regarding ‘Keeping Volunteering Voluntary’.
The PCC agreed to let Westminster Foodbank know that any of their families would be welcome for lunch on Christmas Day, at SJP.
We agreed that Mercedes, Penelope and Lindsay would consider how best to ensure two-way Information flow, with regards to responding to queries raised at the Sunday PCC surgeries, with the possibility of a SJP Newsletter raised. This is especially since the new Notices system is underway, with potential loss of information that cannot be captured in the notices sheet.
Minutes from the Health and Safety Committee and the Liturgy Group were circulated.
Mercedes, Joint Chair of the PCC
