PCC Meeting – February 1st 2016


At its February meeting only a few small pieces of business were on the agenda and so the meeting was relatively short at around 90 minutes.


The main items discussed were financial. Two new financial policies were approved and the church’s 2015 preliminary financial outcome was discussed. The treasurer reported that income had increased in 2015 by 2% compared with 2014 whilst operating expenses had been further reduced. This had enabled an additional £35,000 (compared with budget) parish share payment to be paid to the diocese. With an interregnum ahead there is a need to be somewhat cautious about 2016 but also every reason to be grateful to the Lord for His provision and for the generosity of church members during 2015.


After brief discussions on a couple of other items a period of prayer brought the meeting to a close. Among the matters prayed for were David and Ruth’s future in Cornwall and a number of current pastoral needs within the church.
