The Joint Needs Assessment Committee

The Joint Needs Assessment Committee (JNAC)’s report.  Council has accepted the report and has approved the recommendation that Halton Presbytery declare a vacancy for a full-time ordered minister to start at Eden as soon as possible, ideally July 1, 2017!

A meeting of the congregation is being called to be held after church on Sunday, November 13th.  The purpose of the meeting is to review the report and its recommendations.  If the congregation approves, this report would then be reviewed by the Halton Presbytery Pastoral Relations Committee.

This is a very exciting time for Eden and we encourage you to read the report thoroughly before the meeting!  Many, many thanks to our hard-working JNAC:  Jenn Begin, Karen Campbell, Kim Fletcher, Robert Leschied, Helen McKay, Dave Pratt, Cecile Robinson, the Rev. Allison Playfair (Halton Presbytery) and Mel Matthias (Halton Presbytery).

We hope you will be able to attend the meeting on Sunday, November 13th!

In anticipation of great things to come. Click here to review report.

Kerry Withey, Council Chair.
