Minutes of PCC Meeting 7th May 2014
The Minutes of the last meeting were unanimously accepted, proposed by Peter Wright, seconded by Kath Gill.
There were no matters arising.
Treasurer and Finance Report
Margaret reported that there were a few issues with Barclays Bank and the mandate had still not been sorted. Also the Diocesan share had been paid twice and two cheques for Sharon Press had gone astray. She would continue to persevere and hopefully at the next meeting will report that all issues have been resolved and be able to give an up to date account statement.
Desert Island Disc Event
The evening had been a huge success and Darryl wished to record his thanks and said how much he had enjoyed himself. There had been some very good feedback and a profit of £804 had been made. It was agreed that in future more people be involved in helping, particularly on the day, thanks were extended to everyone who helped and to all who attended making it such a success.
Trip to Lindisfarne
There were 55 people booked and paid with 36 others on the list – Margaret to contact and confirm they are going. Both the walks are full. It had been agreed that children from within the parish would be paid for by PCC, this to be mentioned to regular church goers. Margaret said that she felt there should be someone who was not going on the trip that could be a point of contact.
Darryl expressed thanks to Barry for his long time as representative for the parish as well as being secretary to the Deanery Synod over many years. Barry reported that the last meeting was held at St Mary’s Masham on ministry in a rural community.
Vision for Mission
A notice had been received from the Diocese about 2014 Diocesan Retreat to be held at Wydale Hall, Brompton by Sawdon in August.
Any Other Business
John Hayton said there was going to be a Charity Festival on 5th July. There will be Church of England, Methodist and Catholic representatives involved in the planning. He said it was in the early stages of organisation and would report again.
John Hone mentioned the Church in the Dale tent at the Agricultural Show and asked that a board advertising that it was a church tent be placed outside.
Margaret said she had details of a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in November where there were a few places available and anyone interested should get in touch with her.
