Ashwater Church Council decided at their recent PCC that they urgently need some additional help for the future efficient running of the Church. The areas where help is needed are:
~ Financial support, grant and income generation
~ Administrative support, including with the Diocese
~ Publicity and Communication to the wider community
~ Church building care, maintenance and development.
St Peter’s does not have any churchwardens, and too much responsibility falls on just a few shoulders. We need more people to get involved from both within the regular church congregation and villagers who might attend less frequently. We are seeking for volunteers who have the energy and drive to help move our church here forward, post Coronavirus. So, if you think you might be able to help in any of the above ways (or any other positive ways) then please contact Revd Stephen Skinner on 01237 431622, or at firstname.lastname@example.org
We aim to have improved arrangements for managing our church in place for the (postponed) Annual Parochial Church Meeting, which will now be held in October.
Although we can't visit each other, we can still keep in touch, by phone, email or by writing a letter.
You can share what you've been doing, during this period of separation.
