I am delighted to confirm that The Venerable Doctor Trevor Jones will join us in Sidmouth on the 6th April to support the planning of the future governance of the RMC. It is fantastic to have someone of Trevor’s calibre on hand to plan with us how to rationalise our administration while freeing us up to to be able to concentrate on the core mission of the church and to present the conclusions, already agreed by the constituent P.C.C.s, to the Mission Community as a whole.
