The next meeting of the Reading Group is scheduled for the 15th May starting at 7.30 pm and will be held at David Brown’s apartment, Dorotowska 7/5.

You will need to call when you arrive so he can let you in. David’s telephone numbers are 880 580 628 and 517 285 126.

BN-GT480_bkrvbr_FR_20150202170737The book chosen is Red Notice by Bill Browder, a book that topped the Readers List for sometime, and a book that is very easy to read as it reads like a thriller, even if it is a biography.

Peter Swiecicki will be the presenter and it provides a number of insights into the present system of government in Russia and also raises the broader question on how much a book like this increases our understanding or re-enforces out prejudices.

I recommend all try and read it before we meet.

Everybody is welcome. Please ask others to come with you.

Annual General Meeting

Last Sunday 19th April we had our Annual General Meeting of the Church following the 10:30 am Service. It was a very happy occasion. Reports were presented by myself, the Church Wardens, the Electoral Roll Secretary, the Secretary, the Treasurer and the Deanery Synod Representitives.

I am always so very impressed by the commitment of so many people and the wonderful Service of Time and Talents which they give so freely and generously.
Following the reports, Elections took place for the Church Wardens and the Church Council.

Dan Cocker and Alistair Blunt have been wonderful Church Wardens and made my first months in Warsaw so easy and happy. I will always be deeply grateful to them.

Alison Dilworth and Patrick Acheson are the new Church Wardens. Patrick has an additional responsibility for heading up the preparations for the Eastern European Archdeaconry Synod here in Warsaw in 2016.

Equally, the Church Council have been wonderful and I’m very grateful to all its members in the last few months. The new Church Council is: Alistair Blunt, Joe Giltinane, Adam Kightley, Richard Mortimer, Anne Omokhuale and Clare Ruthley. The two Deanry Synod Representatives: Randy Mott and Adekunle Ayoola were elected last year for 3 years.

At the first Church Council Meeting following the AGM, Susan Ward was coopted (Susan is our brilliant Treasurer) and Clare Ruthley was elected our Secretary.
Rev Robert Gamble opened the AGM with prayer and Rev Felix did the closing prayers.
