Minutes of our meeting for business 3 September 2017

Minutes of a meeting for worship for business held 3/9/17 in the Bethany Room, Methodist Church, Witney.
11 Friends were present. An extract from Quaker Faith and Practice, 27,01, was read out during our opening period of worship.
                27/17 Matters Arising :
a.       As in previous years we are to lay a wreath of red and white poppies during the Remembrance Service in Witney on 12thNovember. We appoint Lesley Morris and Yvette Gulland to do this for us.
b.      Quaker Outreach Week is taking place in October.
We agree to buy ‘The Friend’ outreach magazine to distribute to friends which will cost £10 for 20 copies.
We have 10 outreach postcards for Friends to give to non-Quaker friends inviting them to a meeting. Friends are invited to take these home with them to distribute.

28/17 Half yearly finance report

Ruth Slade, our treasurer, gave a summary of the report.
Our reserves from last year are more than expected and our costs are down at the moment. Our surplus could be between £2,000 and £4,000.
We are asked to consider the possible use of this surplus for 2017 and to bring these considerations to the next Meeting for Business in November.
We are committed to giving a basic amount of £300 to BYM.
Sue Bower’s legacy of £500 is still unspent and separate from the figures seen.
We thank Ruth for all her work with the accounts.

29/17 Food Bank request
Witney Local Food Bank has written to enquire whether our meeting would become a referral agency for them. This would involve handing out vouchers to people known to us who are in need and who could then use the vouchers to obtain food from the bank.
We feel that this is something that the meeting would like to take on. Mahalla Mason and Sue Hubbert are willing to be signatories and to hold the vouchers. Friends would then refer to Mahalla and Sue for further information.

The next Spiritual and Pastoral Care Gathering is on Sunday 24th September after meeting for worship. Sharon Watson will offer a mindfulness exercise as a part of this.

  1. A business incorporation service will handle all the details for incorporating a business or organizing a limited liability company for a business. Traditionally, law firms handled this step for their clients and charged sometimes thousands of dollars for the service. What is now well known is that many law firms turned around and outsourced this process to business incorporation services. This practice is so common that there are several million dollar businesses that exist solely to provide incorporation services to law firms and in-house corporate legal departments.
