Question from Revd Jono Tregale, Pioneer Curate,Wilford Church & Emmanuel School

That this synod asks the Bishop in Council to review the current mission strategy for Fresh Expressions of Church within the diocese and to make recommendations as to:

The percentage of Clergy and Lay Posts that should be devoted to Fresh Expressions of Church over the next 5 year period.

How best to resource and support such posts.

How to recognise and encourage ‘bottom up’ development of Fresh Expressions.

Is there anything to say on this yet?

slide16
Mr Roy Parsons (Newark & Southwell Deanery) to ask the Chair of the Finance Committee (or the Director of Finance):

In connection with DS/Oct10/4 (Approval of the 2011 Budget), page 7, final bullet point:

At the most recent convenient date, what was the overall level of General Fund Reserves and of this what proportion was held in cash, what proportion in investments convertible into cash within one month and what proportion in fixed or tangible assets only realisable after more than one month?

slide17
Question for synod from Revd Jono Tregale, Pioneer Curate, Wilford Church & Emmanuel School

In light of the national celebrations of church schools in 2011 are there any plans for a strategic review of resourcing of school chaplaincy across the diocese, thinking particularly of our 6 secondary schools, where provision is variable? How far ought any resourcing be determined at a diocesan level rather than at a deanery level?

motion

This Synod affirm its ongoing prayerful and practical support for the work and mission of The Nottingham Arimathea Trust (NAT) in terms of sanctuary for “the alien and stranger in our midst”, and express that support by:

  • a) an ongoing commitment to offer and maintain the current Nottingham city vicarage for short term housing for male asylum seekers.
  • b)continuing to explore the purchase of a second house , appropriate for purpose,  for short term housing for up to 5 female asylum seekers.
  • c) assisting NAT in making a new appeal to Anglican church members for financial support for its ministry.

Motion
