It is important for the life of the Parish that we have an up to date Electoral role and people offering to serve for the various office bearer positions of Churchwarden (2 positions), Parish Council Member (6 positions) and Member of the Incumbency Committee (2 positions).
Please check the Electoral Roll to ensure you are listed or take an ‘Application for Enrolment’ and complete and submit by Sunday 15 November.
If you feel led to offer, or believe there is someone who would be good to act, as a Churchwarden, Member of Parish Council or Incumbency Committee Member please take a Nomination Form’ and have it completed and returned also by 15 November.
Those who serve in these roles play a crucial role in ensuring the health and vibrancy of our Parish and in representing your views in the decision-making affecting the future of our Parish and ministry here in Balwyn.
Please prayerful consider if you are able to offer and/or approach others you would be happy to have represent you.
For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is … to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving,
then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; … (Romans 12:4)
Please also make sure you have the date of our Parish Annual Meeting (22 November after the combined 10am service) in your diary and ensure you come along to receive a report on the past year and have your say in relation to future direction for the Parish.
