Update from the North-Eastern District.
As a church we have to respond responsibly in the current crisis. The government, in order to protect the future of jobs, has introduced a furlough scheme that allows 80% of salary to be paid initially for three months, which will be extended, as necessary.
As a result, and knowing that many circuits are under financial pressures, some of the staff at Edgehill House are being furloughed, and from this coming Monday my admin assistant, Karen, will be going on furlough. This means that all future emails and calls should come directly to me.
Please remember Karen, and the others being furloughed, in your prayers.
Be blessed and keep safe,
Rev Philip Agnew
