BREATHING SPACE

Breathing Space is a gathering for worship, fellowship and prayer. For the next few months this will take place at our church in Camden, while its usual church venue is unavailable. The next Breathing Space is on Friday 18th October.

FELLOWSHIP SUNDAY

Fellowship Sunday Service is held every year on the anniversary of the founding of the Metropolitan Community Church, when we remember the calling and mission of the United Fellowship of MCC chuches , and pray for the churches of the fellowship. This year it is on Sunday 6th October, which happens to be the exact day of UFMCC’s 45th birthday.

It is also one of the occasions when we have baptisms, and welcome new members in the rite of Membership. We look forward to a number of new people coming into membership this time, and also the opportunity to get out our baptism pool, for which we do require plenty of people to help us clear up afterward!

HARVEST SUPPER

Our next social event is our Harvest Supper on Saturday 19th October, kicking off at 7:30pm. The tickets are the usual £5 waged / £3 unwaged, to cover the cost of the food, lovingly cooked for us by Jen. There will be singing as well, since we all seem to enjoy a good sing-along so much!

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Our Annual General Meeting takes place on 17th November, at 3pm. This is your chance to discuss and, if you are a member, vote on, the running of the church in the coming year, including voting for the Board Members. If you want to have your say in what we do as a community, it is important to take the time to be here and have your say!

There will be 4 positions on the Board becoming vacant this year. Any member in good standing who has been a member for more than 6 months can be nominated to stand for the Board – if you think you have the skills and commitment needed to fulfil this ministry, please ask Rev Sharon for more information, and she will be able to provide you with details of what is involved in being a Board Member.
