There have been changes in the Freedom Trust Board and a 6-month review is underway. The review is so that Papanui Baptist Freedom Trust can work towards a closer partnership with Papanui Baptist Church (while keeping a distinction between the two organizations). This closer relationship is coming through the board being made up of church leadership. We are thankful for the hard work Roy Britten, Brian Finn and Jessica Thomas have done while on the board. The three new trustees who have been appointed are: Don Jellyman (elder), Heather McLennan (manager) and Sarah Rice (co-pastor). We are appreciative for Andrea Gwynne, who is continuing to operate as a trustee while the handover is taking place. We are incredibly grateful for the work Damian does and his position will not be changing during this review. The operation of the current community programmes and volunteers will, for the most part, remain the same during the review period and it is likely this will be the case in the short-medium term following the review. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Sarah or Elliot.
