CHURCH COUNCIL MEETING REPORT
April 27, 2021
A preliminary understanding has been signed with St. Andrew’s United Church, allowing us to share their space during the redevelopment of 300 Bloor St. W.
Church Social – Council checked out the directory and calendar on this new software program we are adopting for congregational use. We discussed how to be make it even more user-friendly before launching it for the whole congregation in 6 to 8 weeks.
After careful examination, Congregational Care determined that Zoom church has succeeded in reaching all Bloor Streeters who want to access it. If you know of someone who still needs support, don’t hesitate to let us know.
Our Affirming Statement has been reviewed and is almost ready to be re-released with a few important up-dates.
The steps to the courtyard entrance of our building will be painted in rainbow colours in time for Pride month in June this year.
Bloor St. church will be participating with nearby churches in bell-ringing on Mondays through June to honour the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls – this year’s answer to the REDress campaign of yore.
We considered some of the challenges in fulfilling our mission with diminishing volunteer availability. The work of the Nominations chair has been particularly challenging this year.
The approved minutes of the March meeting will be available next week. Contact [email protected], or the chair of council, Garnet Ward.
◊ A reminder: You are welcome to attend council meetings whenever you like. The next regular Council meeting will be on May 25 at 7:00 p.m. Contact Garnet or the church office for the Zoom link.
