Update

There were nine people in attendance at our meeting last Thursday evening. Our liaison from the region office, Kathleen Whyte, led the discussion. Unfortunately, due to our current financial situation, it is impossible to call an ordained minister at this time but we have other options as Kathleen was quick to point out. We had some great discussion focusing on what Dunsford does well and how we are going to get to where we want to be. We have some good news to report – we have had three people step forward to join the search committee!  Ideally, there should be five or seven members (an odd number is best we are told) so if you are interested, please don’t delay. Contact the office or me and we will pass your contact information along. The team is ready to go to work and we are hopeful that quick progress will be made despite the lockdown situation.

Sincerely,

Carol
