Notes from PCC Meeting 20th April 10

1. Kitchen Uplift at S. Nicholas'. The kitchen needs re-organisation with extra cupboards and worksurfaces. A quote has been obtained from Bruce Munn of £911.96 and a further £200 approx needed for electrical work to install 2 double sockets The Lunch House has £500 available and the Treasurer has a donation of £1000 which could be used towards the cost. The PCC resolved to carry out the kitchen uplift.
2. Healing Ministry. Proposals were discussed as to the method of delivering " Healing and Wholeness" and Healing Services. Options included Prayer Ministry after the Communion at Eucharist Service Commission the Healers after the Peace for this ministry to take place following the Eucharist Service or a separate Healing Service
The PCC resolved that a demonstration be given to the congregation.
3. Back to Church Sunday This year this takes place on 26th September. Its aim is to encourage church members to invite their friends back to church. It needs a lot of organisation so the material will be requested in order to aim for September 2011.
4. Outreach Group. HIlary Caffyn's report provided an excellent example of the congregation's generosity during the recession. The Christmas Appeal raised around £2700 split between Stonepillow and the Chichester Shared House. The Lent Appeal raised £995 for Arun Mujjimbire's school fees in Uganda and the balance to the Sansthan Children's Home in Jaipur, India.  The cake sale after the service on 9th May is for Christian Aid, the sponsored Bike Ride is on 11th September, and the Harvest Supper will take place on 9th October.
5. Junior Church. Elizabeth Woodford had reported more adult volunteer helpers. The building work at Lavant School had now been completed so the 3rd Sunday in the month sessions had resumed there. The creation of Easter Gardens at Easter this year instead of the usual bonnets had proved successful as well as a useful teaching aid.
6. Treasurer's Report. The 3 monthly statement showed a deficit of £870 broadly in line with the budgeted yearly deficit. This will have to be addressed at a future PCC Meeting.
7. Churchwardens' Report. The few numbers (only 6) turning up for the annual spring cleaning at St Nicholas' was disappointing- the church is used throughout the week for social activities ,and it made the task very arduous. If volunteers are unwilling to help in future the PCC may have to consider paying contractors.
The hand held microphone at St Nicholas' and the lapel microphone at St Mary's have been replaced. The Rector's vestry will be redecorated and refurbished once the lighting work is completed.
The Awayday on 17th April was postponed due to lack of support.
8. St Nicholas' Organ. At the time of the meeting the organ repairer was away on holiday so the damage to the organ that went up in smoke has yet to be assessed.
