As you know, we are hosting the second of the three cluster meetings the Archbishop has asked us to hold to talk about how we may cooperate within our clusters now and in the future. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. on Wednesday 28 September.
Because the parish rooms are not big enough to hold everyone, we will be holding the meeting in the church. We are asked to split into small groups to discuss items, so will be arranging the furniture as we do for catechism classes.
We would be grateful for some volunteers to help on the evening, if possible, so that our visitors feel welcome.
Andrew has been asked to chair the meeting. We will, however, need people willing to lead each small group and report back their findings to the whole meeting.
In addition, we will provide some light refreshments in the parish rooms for early birds and after the meeting. I have bought milk, tea, coffee, biscuits but we will need some people to help make and serve the teas and clear up.
We probably don’t want hot drinks or food being taken into the church but can perhaps provide jugs of water and the children’s beakers in case people get thirsty during the evening.
So we need volunteers
1) To move furniture around
2)To welcome people and hand out the report of the last meeting that we gave out on Sunday (let me know if you did not receive one and I will forward it to you)
3) To lead the small discussion groups and report back.
4) To help with teas, coffees, etc
If you can let us know whether you are coming and are willing to help – and what you are willing to do, that would be great. If we don’t hear from you, I hope this message means you will not be surprised to be asked to take part on the evening!
With best wishes,
