Where? Gathering Space in the Church.
Time? 7:30-9:00pm in the Church
(unfortunately not enough people expressed interest in a day time group so there will only be an evening one at this stage)

Olive Way Review Information Session
for the Congregation on Sunday 17th March. After the service from 11 am to 12 noon there will be an Olive Way Information Session in the Olive Way area. We will update everyone about the recent Olive Way Review which took place during 2018. There will also be a chance to ask questions.
There will also be a Question and Answer session during worship regarding the role of the Olive Way Coordinator. Church Council has recently asked the Presbytery to make this a Pastor role and Peter Blair will be available to share how he sees this role developing.
