As we will be voting on whether our Diocese bcomes one administrative unit in March 2013, the elections to Diocesan Council are taking place annually to enable a smooth and immediate move to unity should March 2013’ not be favourable. This process has been complicated and in depth for those who represent our diocesan committees, it has gone well and we should pray that we decide to work togther for the benefit of all as one body united in heart, mind & spirit.

Communion and its clergy are supported financially & with housing by the parish in which they serve. Pastoral care, access to the Church’s sacraments, worship and Occasional Offices (Weddings, Funerals) is available to everybody who is Anglican, (Church of Ireland, Church of England etc) residing within the parish boundaries.
Funding for this comes from parishioners (you do not have to sign up, your eligibility comes soley from your residency in the parish)
Contribution to the Assessment is voluntary, but providing the Assessment to the diocese for the monthly stipend payments is obligatory.
You are invited to contribute, which may be in cash/cheque, direct debit or using our envelope scheme where you put a donation into your numbered envelope each week.
While a Thanks offering is usual for Baptisms, Weddings & Funerals and burial fees in our churchyards, the Assessment collection depends on goodwill & a desire to ensured continuance of the live ministry (clergy) in the parish.
Note: the parish newsletter is not paid for from parish funds, it is my way of keeping some sort of communication going in an impossibly large geographical area.
