Special General Meeting — Sunday 9 June
Everyone is invited, and those on the Church’s electoral role are able to vote on the decisions put forward. The SGM will be open after the 9 am service where there will be a brief summary followed by voting for the 9 am service in the gathering area. The meet will be adjourned and then reopened after the 10.30 service where there will be a brief presentation and a chance to ask questions about the things we are voting on. Voting will follow this.
At this SGM we will be asking you to:
* Approve our vision of how we can use our new building to connect to the Karori Community through offering services that meet social needs, deliver financial benefits and minimise impact on the environment. These are likely to include: a café, softplay and counselling (subject to further business planning and Vestry approval), establishing the AYM house and moving the staff location to the new building.
* Approve that funds be released for the detailed design work on the new building – The Community Connection Point. This is an amount of approximately $250,000. This will fund detailed plans that the architects draw up from which we can make funding applications, confirm costs and apply for a building permit. Before we enter a construction contract and start construction there will be a further SGM to approve the money to pay the builders.
Over the past month we have been talking to the parish about this Vision through various meetings and an information session held after the AGM. This is an exciting time for our Parish and it’s important we move forward together.
