How do you like the new notices format? With the Old Rectory getting ready for use once we have final building regs sign-off in a couple of weeks we thought we’d try a new approach in our informing everyone about things. This is part of a bigger review of communication that we are starting. The majority of notices will now be sent via email...if you’d like to go on the mailing list please email plus if you have any thoughts on the new look please let Karen or Simon know. Thanks to everyone who played a part in the Old Rectory grand opening; through prayer, vision, financial sacrifice, teamwork and getting involved. It was a great event, one of the most significant moments in our recent shared BHC history. The Old Rectory is all of ours, pointing to Christ as we look to the future. If you would like a tour, please give us a call and we’ll sort it. Lastly, financially, we had a review meeting this week and information about the situation will come out in the next three weeks.
