We are delighted to welcome Gillian Rowe to the State Ministry Team.
Gillian joins us in the new role of “Finance and Resourcing Support Officer”, and will be involved in assisting with our financial and compliance duties, in working with Phil Burgess to continue to provide a wide range of financial, operational and administrative support for our churches, and in what is a new function, working with Churches of Christ Financial Services to assist us all in rolling out and supporting banking and insurance services for churches. A committed Christian and with strong experience in the Disability Services sector, Gillian brings a wealth of experience and a servant-hearted approach to this new role.
Gillian tells us that she comes from a family of two sons, two dogs and a cat. They live in the north-eastern suburbs and are members of the Presbyterian Church of South Australia. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family, watching her sons play sport, listening to podcasts and reading. Gillian’s appointment anticipates Ruth Telfer's retirement later this year after 15 years of faithful service to the work of the State Office and of our Conference of Churches.
Since early 2017 the State Board have been undertaking a review of the State Conference, including all churches, work groups and departments of Churches of Christ SA & NT. Please find attached the latest report presented to the Conference at the AGM in November. This is a summary report. If you would like more detail, please contact us.
Please find attached our Newsletter for December. Our next state Newsletter will be available late January 2019.
