Saturday 9 October, 9.15 am - 3.00 pm

You are warmly invited to attend this year’s online AGM and Annual Programme.

The formal business meeting starts at 9.30am and is in two parts. See the Schedule for the rest of the day’s programme: Presentation, Worship, Guided Discussion on Strategic Priorities and Social Break-Out rooms to connect informally (coffee and lunch breaks).

We are very much looking forward to welcoming WATCH member and former trustee Revd Dr Miranda Threlfall-Holmes who will offer a presentation mid-morning. Our annual get-togethers offer a mixture of encouragement and challenge as we think about what we have done, endured, grieved and, yes, celebrated this past year, and what we are hoping and praying for.
