Our Annual Stated Meeting will be on Monday, 31st March 2014

The Annual Stated Meeting (ASM) of the Congregation will take place on Monday 31st March at 7.30pm. Why not make an evening of it by joining us at 6.30pm for a potluck supper!!

In our recently published Annual Report for 2013, the Kirk Session looked back to summarise some of the many activities that have been undertaken by Newhaven Church over the past year, and looked forward to how we can further develop in 2014 through to March 2015.  We urge members, regular attenders and all people who are even vaguely interested in or connected with Newhaven Church to read the Annual Report and reflect upon it!

This year’s Annual Stated Meeting, which will be held on Monday 31st March 2014, will give all members and regular attenders the opportunity to reflect upon our Church’s activities, to have discuss on the way forward, to ask questions of the Kirk Session and to voice support or otherwise for it. We will discuss the Church’s 2013 accounts, have group discussion, and discuss formal ASM business which will include the re-designation of the Development Fund.

We hope that as many members and regular attenders will attend this very important event in our Church year. It’s a time for fellowship and celebration of where we have been together, and a time for support, encouragement to each other and the seeking of God’s blessing for the times ahead.

29/09/13 sermon – What we notice compared to God’s vision (Jeremiah 1:4-12)

On Sunday 29th September 2013, we were pleased to welcome back Rev Dr George Whyte who led our communion service in Peter’s absence.  Rev Dr George Whyte considered Jeremiah 1:4-12 (The call of Jeremiah) and what Jeremiah noticed compared to God’s vision (The Almond Tree and Watching – ‘shaked and shoked’).

If you would like to see the bible reading online, please follow this link to read Jeremiah 1:4-12 online on the BibleGateway website.

Annual Stated Meeting – Vision and Strategy

The Annual Stated Meeting of the Congregation will take place on Monday 19th March at 7.30pm. Why not make an evening of it by joining us at 6.30pm for a potluck supper!!

In our Annual Report for 2012, the Kirk Session explained how we should look back upon the shared journey of Newhaven Church through 2012, and discuss and form a Vision and Strategy for the next stages of that journey. We urge members, regular attenders and all people who are even vaguely interested in or connected with Newhaven Church to read the Annual Report and reflect upon it!

The Kirk Session’s plans asks a lot of the Congregation and its faith, and if they are to be anything more than words on a page, the Vision and Strategy need the support of the Congregation. This year’s Annual Stated Meeting, which will be held on Monday 18 March 2013, will give all members and regular attenders the opportunity to reflect upon the Vision and Strategy, to discuss it, to ask questions of the Kirk Session and to voice support or otherwise for it.

We hope that as many members and regular attenders will attend this very important event in our Church year. It’s a time for fellowship and celebration of where we have been together, and a time for support, encouragement to each other and the seeking of God’s blessing for the times ahead.

Colin MacNeill, Session Clerk
