Annual Parochial Church Meeting
This year’s Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) will take place in Shipbourne Church on Monday 26 April 2021.
During the meeting there will be reports on the activities of the Church over the past year and the annual report and financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2020 will be presented for approval. The annual report provides further information on the activities of the church during 2020.
The annual report and the financial statements for 2020 and earlier years can be found on the St Giles administration page.
A time for coffee hospitality and mutual support…..and perhaps even singing, music making, discussion….for Mums, Dads and carers and pre-school children. We will meet normally each month in Plaxtol Church on the fourth Thursday of each month at 9.30am. Note that because of the Coronavirus pandemic, meetings of the Mums Ahoy! group have been suspended from March 2020 until further notice.
The Rector writes: “We still want to offer hospitality to any who might appreciate the chance to have a nice cup of coffee made for them……..We are not offering coffee for a chance to ram the Bible down your throat! We’re looking to serve this section of our community as a gentle expression of our faith and God’s love for all.”
