Congregational Meeting (incl. Elders Election)

At Coro, we seek to be a people focused on Jesus; worshipping God, building one another up, enacting God's justice and proclaiming the good news of Jesus to the world.

On Sunday 25 October we will have our Congregational Meeting (AGM) where we will provide an update on various aspects of our life together as a church family as well as seek to elect four elders to help us prayerfully work towards our vision. Three of our current elders have retired since our last election; they are Loki Ingham and in recent weeks both Norm Tucker and Cat Patrick.

The current eldership comprises Wes Chambers, Jenny Wichert, Sam Cheesman and Steve Kaesler with Rick Seaman co-opted onto council until the end of October. We are seeking an additional four elders.

There are some changes to the process from last time:

- The meeting will be live streamed so that those unable to attend can still participate (including the ability to ask questions)

- Those unable to attend in person will be given the opportunity to cast their vote remotely over the seven days following the meeting.

We would love you to enter fully into this process. Firstly, please pray for the Lord's leading and His choice of elders to be elected. Secondly, consider who you may nominate:

- Read the [Election Info Sheet](https://www.corouniting.org/d/puzQm3aBj6y7BxL9uI9sMKSMm) for an overview of the process - green A5 flyer at the Welcome Desk

- If you are nominating someone (or are being nominated) you will also need:

- [Eldership at CoroUniting](https://www.corouniting.org/d/udUKcf0YzUO5NBrZqOTFqDOMM) (essential reading - explains the role of the elder in more detail) - cream A5 booklet at the Welcome Desk
