Re: sacrament for the sick or homebound

Our Stake President has said we should follow the government guidelines which basically says that we should not be visiting anyone unless it is as a carer for a vulnerable person. He has said we can administer the Sacrament in our own home, we should not visit other family members, or anyone else, t...

Re: Total Buget Allowance and Unit Deposit explain please

Just thought I would add some background info. In the UK the stake have no control over the budget allocation, that is decided by the area office. The wards get 80% of the total budget allowance.

Re: Annual fire evacuation

I have checked the fire laws and their application to churches in the UK and there is indeed a requirement to hold annual practice drills. They do not have to be surpise drills we can plan for it and let the members know it is happening. Will probably hold the drill in the summer straight after chur...

Re: Annual fire evacuation

I don’t believe it is a legal requirement, I will be going over the material that has been sent to us to see what it says. This is the first year it has been mentioned. I personally see little value in a drill as the occupancy varies so much during the week that it will basically rely on leaders in ...

Re: Annual fire evacuation

Thank you for the reply. The reason for the question is that our local facilities group have said the units should hold an annual drill. We have 2 units that share the building, with back to back meetings, and so holding it during normal church meetings would disrupt the Sacrament meeting for one of...

Annual fire evacuation

Hi all.
I realise this is not a clerk issue but was wondering if I could get a feel for what happens in other units.
Does anyone hold an annual fire evacuation drill and if you do when do you hold it? During Sacrament meeting for example.

Thank you

Re: Assigning a Annotated member to a ministry family

I find this a little surprising as those with annotations are still members. We have a brother that has an annotation that he cannot work with youth or children but he should still be ministered too and I see no reason why he can't serve as a minister to carefully chosen members. I am hoping this is...

Missionary information

Hi, I have been asked to find some information for a 50th building anniversary by one of our high councillors. I am not convinced I can fulfill his request but thought I would ask the forum because you lot would know if anyone does. The stake leaders would like a list of all those members who served...
