LetterDear Glen Family,

We would like thank those who participated in our month long survey, from 9th February until 2nd March, about the possibility of moving the Sunday Evening service time from 18h30 to 18h00. With the two morning service times remaining as they are at 08h00 and 09h45.

The findings of our survey are as follows: From the two morning services, 54 forms were received with a 55% response for “I am happy with the move in service time from 18h30 to 18h00.” And 45% support for “I am happy to go along with the decisions made by the members of our Church who worship at the 18h30 service, as far as it concerns the move in service time from 18h30 to 18h00.” We received a 55% for, 45% neutral, and a 0% against response.

From the 18h30 service, 35 forms were received with 32 for, 2 against and 1 neutral response. Thus 91% are in support of the proposed move in service time from 18h30 to 18h00. Taking into consideration the 45% from the morning service that said “I am happy to go along with the decisions made by the members of our Church who worship at the 18h30 service…” as in support of the proposed move in service time from 18h30 to 18h00. We have thus received 100% support from the morning services and 91% support from the evening service.

With an overwhelming response in support of the move in service time received by the time of our AGM, held on the 26th of February 2014, this matter was tabled and a unanimous vote was received from the meeting, in terms of moving the service time for our evening service from 18h30 to 18h00. This change in service time will come into effect from our new preaching plan in April 2014.

If you hold opinions different from the decision made and would like to enter into conversation with us please contact one of the Glen Ministers, one of the Society Stewards or the Church office to discuss your views.

On behalf of the Ministry Team, we would like to thank you for your participation and inputs in this endeavour.

Yours in Christ

Rev Raymond Keet
