Meeting of the Congregation
Sunday 2 June 2019
Dear Morialta friends
A reminder that there will be a meeting of the congregation at 10.45 am on Sunday 2 June.
As this is a special meeting called to consider two items, Morialta’s mission priorities and which Presbytery Morialta will join, there will be no printed agenda and none of the reports that would normally be expected at a meeting of the congregation. As usual, though, the Beyond Morialta Mission Projects Team will provide muffins for morning tea – gold coin(s) donation is requested.
Two documents are attached, Identifying our Mission Priorities for Moving Forward – 2019 circulated and considered at our March meeting, and Choosing a Presbytery which complements and summarises the briefings Bob has provided over the past two Sunday mornings.
You have probably either downloaded or printed Identifying our Mission Priorities for Moving Forward – 2019. Please do the same with Choosing a Presbytery and bring both to the meeting with you. There will be two copies of each document on the tables at the meeting.
I look forward to seeing you on 2 June and to joining you in decision-making that will guide our way forward in God’s mission and ministry here at Morialta and in the wider Church.
AGM of the congregation
10.45 am, Sunday 31 March
Dear Morialta Friends,
I look forward to welcoming you to the Meeting of the Congregation to be held on Sunday 31 March from 10:45 am.
This is email 1 containing meeting papers, coming to you early to give you time for pre-meeting reading – please! In addition to the several attachments listed below, may I draw your special attention to the one labelled ‘Mission Priorities_ Congregation Resource Document_ March 2019’ (available on request from the secretary). It reflects the work Council has done on discerning a process to help us move forward into 2019 and beyond, by recognising where we are and moving towards making decisions about where to from here. This is the document I referred to in my February Vision piece; it is quite long – 8 pages – but the font is hopefully large enough for easy reading! I will present the main ideas from the document at the meeting, encourage your questions and comments, and outline the process we hope to follow from here, which will provide plenty of time for thoughtful reading, discussion and prayer.
It’s the beginning of a journey together.
The other attached papers are these:
Minutes of meeting held 2 December 2018 (These will be taken as read at the meeting and any questions or comments you may have about them will be very welcome.)
10.45 am on Sunday 2 December.

Church Council will bring two proposals to the meeting:
- Any decision regarding purchasing chairs be put on hold until there is clarification of the Congregation’s financial situation and property issues are addressed.
- If in the future, a decision is made to purchase chairs, the congregation note that the Church Seating Steering Group recommends Alloyfold Church Chairs (being those provided by way of example by Walkerville Uniting Church) as the preferred chair.
There may be more papers emailed early next week and, as usual, there will be a few copies of the papers on the tables at the meeting.
Margaret and I are looking forward to seeing you at the meeting – please remember your gold coins for the muffin morning tea.
