May minutes of meeting for business

WITNEY LOCAL QUAKER MEETING
Minutes of a meeting for worship for business held on 7.5.17 in the Bethany Room.
Nine Friends were present. §21.10 of Quaker Faith and Practice was read during our opening worship.
18/17 Area Meeting 13.5.17
We appoint Allan Carr as our representative to the AM in Burford. We note that the testimony to the grace of God in the life of our Friend Sue Bowers has been forwarded to AM and will be read at this meeting. (The testimony was read to Witney Friends at a meeting for worship in April.)

19/17 Quaker Outreach Week 2-8 October
 We have discussed whether we wish to be actively involved in organising events during this year’s outreach week. We will return to this but in the meantime will consider whether an investment in website development would be more effective. We ask Jennifer Barraclough to take this forward.

20/17 Remembrance Day  2017 
We ask Don Mason to arrange for a mixed wreath again, and to research an appropriate quotation. Friends are invited to consider whether they would be willing to lay the wreath. Mahalla Mason will again organise the purchase and sale of white poppies.

21/17 Summer outing
We plan to picnic on Sunday 11 June in the ruins of Minster Lovell, beginning at around 12.30. Friends are asked to bring their own picnic with a little extra to share, and their own chairs if needed. If the weather is poor, Ann and Brian Mills have offered their home and garden   Car share can be organised on the day.

22/17 Spiritual and Pastoral Care Gathering
 Because of the picnic, the next S & P Gathering will be held after meeting for worship on 25 June. If Lesley Morris is available, we ask her to lead us on the topic of pilgrimage.

23/17 Any other business
Area Meeting appointments: Nominations are required for Local Meeting representatives on the Elders and Overseers group for AM for the next triennium (Jan 2018 – Dec 2020). We ask Friends to consider this service, and will return to this item at our June meeting.

There being no other business, we closed with worship at 11.55 am.
