Postponement of Circuit Assembly on 18 March 2018

Home » News Stories » Postponement of Circuit Assembly
Chelt St Marks 1

After consulting and establishing the weather conditions around the county (snow and ice, and the forecast for the rest of the day):

  • the Assembly this afternoon and this evening's Circuit Service will NOT TAKE PLACE, and
  • the Assembly (but not the Circuit Service) is POSTPONED to take place instead next Sunday 25 March at 3pm, again at Cheltenham St Mark's.

The decision not to meet today is obviously made with regards to everyone's safety, and the recognition that many would simply not be able to get there. The decision to hold the Assembly next week, and not simply to cancel, is motivated above all by the wish to reflect together those proposals and decisions which cannot be delayed until the Assembly in May.

Due to evening services already in place at both St Mark's and elsewhere, there will be no Circuit Service following the rescheduled Assembly. Instead, we will aim to end the Assembly at 5.30pm to allow stewardship arrangements for existing services to go ahead as planned. There will be no tea served after the Assembly, however cups of tea or coffee and biscuits will be served before the rescheduled Assembly from 2.30pm on Sunday 25 March.

With many thanks to everyone for their understanding and flexibility in these particular circumstances.
