The Vestry met on Sunday 12th February 2017 at 12.20 pm, on the second floor of the Parish House, with the Rector presiding.
- Gave their appreciation to retiring Vestry members Yvette Manigold and Wendy Bathgate, and discussed nominations for the new Vestry;
- Heard the finance report from Simonetta Ciccolini regarding 2016 results: discussion included reconciliation of the Parochial Report to the budget; repayment of a loan from the Board; and how deficits are paid for. Ms. Ciccolini also reported that 2017 looks more promising; the 2017 budget was approved. It is hoped that we will receive the audited 2016 figures before the Annual Meeting.
- Approved the 2016 Parochial Report. It was noted that we have revised the database, accounting for the apparent drop in numbers.
- Were reminded of the upcoming Lenten Retreat.
The meeting was adjourned at 1.50 pm.
The next regular Vestry meeting will be held on Sunday, March 12th at approximately 12.00pm, following the Eucharist.
