Official Notice of The Gathering incorporating Annual Assembly
You are invited to be part of The Gathering incorporating the Annual Assembly for our 154th year to be held on Saturday 14 May 2022, starting at 9:30am!
Our Annual Assembly is a time to reflect on all that God is doing amongst us, to connect with others in our movement and glimpse how Jesus is leading us as we work together to minister with one another and those around our world.
Our Annual Assembly will take place on Saturday 14 May 2022 and will be incorporated into The Gathering program.
WHAT WILL BE HAPPENING AT THIS ASSEMBLY:
Our 2022 Annual Assembly will be an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the ministry of 2021 and to look to the future as we continue the outworking of the GEN1K Strategic Priorities we adopted at our 2020 Assembly. It will also be a time of discernment and affirmation of God’s leading for several elected positions, an opportunity to further discuss some significant matters and to keep you up to date with important activities.
During the day, the following matters will be put to vote:
- Receiving the 2021 Annual Reports and Financial Statements
- Affirmation of the 2022 Association Budget
- Affirmation of new affiliated churches and ministers proceeding to Accreditation
- Approval of revised Guidelines for Accreditation and Recognition of Ministers
- Procedural changes to the Association’s Constitution
- Elections for Assembly Council, Morling College Council and the Baptist Churches of NSW Property Trust
We will also receive an update and progress report from Assembly Council on the work of Taskforce 1 and other matters being progressed following our February 2021 Special Assembly. In addition, we will celebrate the recipient of the David Brown Scholarship for 2022 and hear an exciting update on next stages of the vision for the campus at Macquarie Park and how this will resource the vision of our College and Association into the future.
