For sale in aid of church funds

Our fundraising Tea Towel makes an ideal gift for many occasions. Priced 6.50 it is excellent value for such a quality item. So any time you need a gift please think 'Church Tea Towel'. Tea Towels can be gift wrapped & posted direct, saving you any hassle. Purchasing our tea towel contributes towards the running cost of St John's, particularly at this time of reduced income.

To place your order please phone Lyn on 07890 902816 or 01955 611339 or contact Brenda via email. Delivery or collection will be arranged.

Vestry Secretary's Report

Annual General Meeting

The date of the Annual General Meeting is still to be confirmed. The Vestry are considering whether this will be held over zoom or in the church building. Once confirmed, we will communicate this on the website at stjohnswick.org.uk, through email and by telephone.

Changes to Constitution

All members of St Johns should by now have received a letter regarding consultation on changes to the constitution. I have had one response to the consultation, which was positive. If you have not received a letter then please let me know.

As a reminder, the Constitution for St Johns does not specifically make mention of the procedures for virtual meetings, and requires to be amended. Following a decision at Synod we also need to amend the age of constituent members from not less than eighteen years to not less than sixteen years. It makes sense to make both these changes at the same time.

A Special Meeting will be held for members to vote on the proposed changes.

Attendance at Church

It is still necessary to book a place for each service. If you are on the rota to do a reading or intercessions, you are automatically added to the list for that Sunday. The latest update from the Advisory Group suggests that congregational singing will be allowed once we are at Level 1. The Highlands are currently at Level 2.

Toilet Project

The Sub Committee are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a grant of 15,000 from the Highland Coastal Communities Fund. We have also been awarded 3,000 from the All Churches Trust. Decisions are awaited from the National Churches Trust and the Landtrust Landfill Fund.

As we are now much closer to our funding target, the Sub Committee have instructed the architect, Neil McDonald, to carry out further work:

  • To contact Norbloc, the builder, for an updated project cost, as the tender is now over 18 months old. We need to be fully funded before the project begins, as we cannot take any risks with a shortfall.
  • To submit an application for a building warrant to Highland Council. This will cost 626.
  • To instruct a Structural Survey - this is required for the building warrant. Fairhurst Engineering have been instructed, and they have kept their fee at 2019 prices which is good news for us. This will cost 595 + VAT.
  • To progress matters with Scottish Water regarding the sewage connection and levels.

Planning permission has been extended to 21 March 2022.

Vestry Secretary
