Congregational Meeting for Ministry Settlement Board (MSB):  The congregation will be advised of who the nominees are in a global email, prior to a Congregational Meeting on for Sunday 7 April 2024 (after the 10am Service, at the Village Bryndwr).  If there are no more than four nominees an election will not be necessary, and the appointment of all four nominees onto the MSB will be confirmed at the Congregational Meeting.

If you do not have access to email and would like the names of the nominees, please phone the Parish Clerk, Joy to obtain these.  Joy will have this information from Tuesday 2nd April.
