What happened at the May Assembly
This year, for the first time in history, Assembly was unable to meet in a face-to-face context due to the COVID-19 restrictions. So we adapted and a detailed document outlining business that needed to be addressed was created and sent to all Members. Feedback and questions were encouraged before an online voting platform was presented and 53 valid responses were received. Taking into consideration the constitutional criteria for the number of votes entitled per church meant this number represented 100 eligible votes, roughly the same number we see at our usual face-to-face gatherings.
Thank you to all who took the time to participate in this process. We can confirm that all motions presented were overwhelmingly passed, including the new DOM position description and the extension of Mike Mill’s term as SEM for a few more months.
Our Annual Assembly is currently scheduled for Sat 14th November – hopefully, we will be back to face-to-face by then! In the meantime, God bless, and may you thrive as you serve Him.
