Vestry Report April 2019

  • Vestry approved to increase the Church Administrator’s contract (Marie) to 14 hours per week.
  • Scottish Faiths Action for Refugees has approached Nicki for help. Wendy is investigating to see if there is a willing team to run a weekend club for Refugees later in the year.
  • Julian resigned for personal reasons and Philip Rossiter is to be approached to see if he is willing to replace him.
  • Our cleaner has resigned but will continue until we find a replacement.
  • Marie is to investigate the possibility of using contract cleaners.
  • The Treasurer informed Vestry that there had not been time to prepare formal accounts to 31 March in time for the meeting but that Church Income and expenditure is on track in relation to the budget for the year. A £2500 legacy has been received from Sally Hempson.
  • Investment Committee Consultation: We have received a communication from the Provincial synod questioning whether the ethical restriction could be taken off the Investment criteria. Vestry felt that we should write to Synod expressing that as an interested party we would want the ethical restriction to remain.
  • The church is noticeably brighter following the lighting upgrade.
  • Bob Pritchard has summarised the Quinquennial Report. No urgent actions were identified.  The ‘Essential’ works (mostly external minor roof repairs) will be addressed and carried out within the next 18 months as suggested.
  • Vestry approved to move the notice board closer to the bus stop. This will require Canon 35.
  • Nicki, Russell and Margaret Holmes attended recent Safeguarding training sessions.
  • Vestry approved St Cuthbert’s participation in the 24hour day of prayer 6 to 7 June. Nicki asked for helpers.
  • Vestry approved that we will advertise for a Pastoral Worker for children (16 hours on pro rata stipend) but who will also work with the elderly as required, as a replacement for Mary Moffett. It is hoped that the post holder will link the youth with Brew and Blether.
  • In answer to a question from Wendy, Nicki confirmed that Grave Talk would be repeated in the Summer.
  • The full minutes are available in the folder at the back of the Church. An electronic version can be requested by email, contact: julia.roberts01@btinternet.co
