NOTICE OF MEETING


There will be a Special Vestry Meeting at 11:00 AM on Sunday, November 12, 2017 to consider the following Motion:


Motion


Whereas Over the period of five years, the members of the Peterborough Covenant Churches (All Saints Anglican, Christ Lutheran, St Barnabas Anglican, St John the Evangelist Anglican and St Luke Anglican) have discerned together, in the midst of a changing world, a calling of the Holy Spirit to be church in new, creative and missional ways.


Therefore:


Be it resolved that;  
We, the Vestry of All Saints’ Anglican Church (Peterborough), amalgamate with the churches of the Peterborough Covenant to form a new parish at the site of the present St John the Evangelist Anglican Church.

Note 1: this motion will be considered and voted on at all five parishes. The wording is from the Diocese.

Note 2: The Diocese does not permit proxies, so we cannot accept them . Please consider the following as a rationale for not allowing proxy voting:
Organizations have meetings – so members can meet face to face, discuss the issues, and arrive at a reasonable agreement through a vote. Members often come to meetings thinking that their minds are made up about certain issues, but after hearing the discussion, they change their minds and vote differently. Proxies remove that process.

Note 3: Due to the fact that the same Motion is being considered and voted on by all five parishes, no ammendments will be allowed.

 

In order to sign in and receive a ballot, a person makes the following Declaration when they sign-in.

"I solemnly declare that I have been a member of the Anglican Church of Canada and of this congregation for at least three (3) months, that I have attended regularly scheduled services of worship with this congregation at least three (3) times in the past year, that I am of the full age of sixteen (16) years and that I have not voted as a member of any other vestry during the previous three (3) months, nor do I intend to vote in any other vestry during the ensuing year".

If you wish to determine if you are on our Parish List, a copy of the current list is posted on the Notice Board outside the office. Alternatively, you can call the office and they will check the list for you.

A Letter from Bishop Riscylla Shaw

September 12, 2017
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

Grace to you and peace this day in the name of Jesus.

Thank you for your long patience in awaiting the decision on the future of the four Anglican Churches and one Lutheran church in The City of Peterborough.

I look forward to sharing this decision and engaging in conversation with you at these two gatherings:

Sunday October 1st 3pm light luncheon at All Saints Anglican and

Monday October 2nd 6pm supper at St. John’s.

You are welcome to attend one or both of these gatherings which will be a Eucharist together and breaking bread together.

This conversation will continue in your individual congregations and at Anglican special vestry meetings and the Lutheran congregational meeting to follow.

Please continue to pray for this process.

With gratitude,

Bishop Riscylla Shaw
