DP & Trustee Elections 2021
We are beginning the process of electing a new Diocesan President and Trustees for January 2022 – December 2024, and we are asking you to prayerfully consider whether this is something you believe God is calling you to.
This document has all the information – I am very happy to talk to anyone who wishes to discuss it further.
We would love to have representation on the Board from all parts of our Diocese.
The new Trustee Board will lead MU in Coventry Diocese over the next 3 years – an exciting time in the development and future of MU.
I look forward to hearing from you,
Jane, on behalf of the current Trustee Board.
Next Link Up
The next issue of Link Up will come out around mid-May, when we should at least be able to meet up more, even if not as a whole Diocese. So it will be a printed magazine as usual which we hope branches will be able to distribute
Please let me have news and photos of anything you have been doing during the past six months, birthdays, anniversaries and deaths.
Articles should not be more than 300 words
Send photos as separate attachments if possible, and as high a resolution as possible
Tell me who took the photos and check you have permission from those in it, for it to be published (I may pass it on to Sue for the website or Facebook unless you tell me not to)
Send me the names of new members, as well as those celebrating significant birthdays or anniversaries and those who have died
We print birthdays for 80, 85 if space permits, 90+, Golden, Diamond and Platinum anniversaries and membership anniversaries for 50+ years
There is not usually space for obituaries, unless someone has had a significant role in the Diocese, but please do send me names
Remember that something your branch has been doing, may seem small and uninteresting to you, but may be an inspiration to someone else! Answered prayers and unexpected surprises can give us all some joy at the moment
Please send material to me by the end of March, or if this is not possible, then let me know you will be sending something so I can reserve a space. My address, phone number and email are on page 22 of Link Up
