This is an announcement to be shared today with the Congregations of Kimberley United and All Saints Anglican regarding the opportunity to pursue discussions concerning options available to us as we work together into the future.
We have had one preliminary meeting from which both individual councils have passed motions to continue to proceed with the possibility of some sort of shared ministry.
It appears that we can begin this work late this summer. We are blessed to have The Reverend Dr. Laura J Hermakin (Windermere Valley Shared Ministry), Kathy Davies (United Church Lay Regional Minister) and Rev Trevor Freeman (Anglican church diocese) to aid us in the process.
We want to emphasize that this is in the beginning stage only and that both congregations will be an integral part of the decision making process. We intend to make this a “made in Kimberley Solution”.
Please keep open minds and hearts as we contemplate what terrific opportunities might lie ahead for our continued Christian work in our community of Kimberley.
