An Urgent Priority - A Treasurer for the PCC

Our PCC urgently needs a new Treasurer. Several people are already helping or have offered to help with the Treasury function including doing the bookkeeping, banking, billing and fee administration, payroll, cheque writing and Gift Aid administration, but we still need someone willing to be Treasurer and oversee the finance operations and prepare accounts and reports for the PCC. This is a crucial role, please pray that the right person will be found. Please speak to Keith for further details.
