De kerkeraad heeft bij de laatste vergadering de veranderingen aan de kerkorde goedgekeurd.
Het Dutch Centre heeft de lening van de kerk nu volledig terugbetaald. Ik citeer hun woorden van dank: ‘Together, we have come a long way: the full repayment of the loan is testament to the fact that we took our first baby steps whilst metaphorically holding your hand and we now feel that we are able to walk unaided. The support has been instrumental in helping the Dutch Centre to ride the Covid-19 crisis relatively unscathed and the trustees are looking forward to reinstating a full and varied programme of events’.
Our local oracle.
Back in 2017 the church council was minded to appoint its first ever London consultant. We are most grateful to the Venerable Luke Miller, the Archdeacon of London, for initially accepting our invitation. Father Luke, who works directly for Bishop Sarah Mullally, has rapidly responded to our diverse questions ever since, and always knows the right answer. Never in our history have we needed to seek Anglican advice so closely than during the current pandemic. We recently sent Father Luke a selection of books with an Austin Friars flavour as a small token of appreciation for acting as our local oracle.
