Annual Chaplaincy Meeting 2020 Our annual meeting was due to take place on Sunday 22nd March 2020 in Madremanya Church after the Church service but obviously Covid 19 got in the way of this. Our rescheduled meeting is going to take place on Zoom on 6th October 2020. As we are only allowed to have a maximum of 10 people at a physical meeting, the chaplaincy council agrees that a Zoom meeting is a more equitable way forward but recognising the legalities of the ACM, a small meeting of 10 people including the Wardens and Secretary will meet physically to ratify the decisions made via Zoom. Due to security, we can't put the Zoom invitation on here but it will be sent out on the daily email nearer to the time.
All are welcome to attend the meeting on Zoom but only members on the Electoral Roll of the Costa Brava Chaplaincy will be allowed to vote or ask questions.
Please find below the nomination forms.
At the ACM this year we have a number of vacancies. Please consider them thoughtfully and prayerfully and speak to Rachel, the Churchwardens or members of the Chaplaincy Council if you have any more questions.
Nomination forms can be downloaded from the website or ask David Wilkinson (the current Chaplaincy Council secretary). Nominations and voting can only be from people who are on the Chaplaincy Electoral Roll. Please speak to Keith Grant for a form to be included on the roll.
Churchwardens Church Wardens are elected for a one year term of office. Nominees wishing to stand for election as a Churchwarden should discuss this with the Chaplain in advance of completing the application form. Carol Wilkinson and Gill Hepworth have indicated that they are willing to stand for re-election. This does not prevent other people from standing.
Chaplaincy Council Members There is a total of three vacancies for elected membership of the Chaplaincy Council this year. These are all for the normal term of three years, i.e. from March 2020 to March 2023.
Archdeaconry Synod Representatives There are two vacancies for the Archdeaconry Synod. Representatives are elected for a three-year cycle from March 2020 to March 2023. Electoral Roll Under the Church Representation Rules people are entitled to have their names on the Electoral Roll if they:
