Chapter met on the 22nd of March and 26th of April.
At the meeting on the 22nd of March, the decision was taken to move forward with the sound system work; this has now been completed. We discussed the various services of the church, and in particular reviewed the progress of the 5pm service in the light of the work that Ann Kember and Brother Chris Martin have done to revitalise these services whilst keeping within the structures described in Common Worship and New Patterns of Worship. Music at the 11am service was also discussed; this is “work in progress”.
The meeting on the 26th of April was the first of the newly formed Chapter, after the APCM. The focus was primarily on appointments, officers and roles for 2015 – 16. Discussion of the churchyard was deferred to the subsequent Chapter meeting.
