At the A.G.M. we were notified by Ian, our interim moderator, that we had an applicant interested in exploring ministry of Bilton and Knaresborough URC.
The elders of both churches met with the prospective candidate and we were 100% that we felt right to call the minister to the next stage.
After thoughtful prayer, the minister also felt right to go to the next stage.
The weekend of Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June will be when the minister comes to meet both congratulations and take the service in both churches. Full details and times will be announced in church, but please keep the dates free.
This is an exciting time as we explore whether God is calling this minister to our two churches. Please pray, please come along and together let us discern the will of God.
Everyone is welcome on the Saturday to meet the minister and at the service and meeting after the service on Sunday; however, only members can vote (the vote will be a paper vote).
If you feel Bilton URC is your spiritual home, why not consider full membership? In our denomination, it is the church meeting that has the final decision about church business.
If you are considering membership have a word with me.
