The election of the Chair and Secretary was postponed to the next meeting
to allow all PPC members to be present, be considered, and to vote.
Fr Charles agreed to represent the Worship and Liturgy Group on the PPC for

many are concerned, everyone was invited to see it as a chance for growth
and rebuilding of the church.
The PPC took reports from Richard Belt for Communications and Peter Berners-Lee
for Mission on their group's first meetings. The remaining priority groups
were recommended to take the summer off and start afresh in September.

volunteers was welcomed and accepted by the PPC.
Fr Charles reported that he has been appointed to the MSC Provincial Administration
Council so some meetings and travel will be necessary.
The parish hall is now booked to its maximum. At present, no bookings are
being taken for next year pending a review by Fr Charles.
