The Friends is administered by its Executive Committee. The committee has been operating by email during the closure.
The Autumn Luncheon 2019 took place on 17th November at the New House Hotel, Thornhill, Cardiff. Because of coronavirus restrictions, no Autumn Luncheon has been arranged for 2020. It is hoped that if possible a luncheon can be held in the spring of 2021.
FESTIVAL AND ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2020
Because of coronavirus restrictions there was no Annual Festival of the Friends in 2020. A short formal Annual General Meeting took place on Sunday 18th October at St John’s church. Members already there for morning worship were able to remain present. Other members were advised not to attend and to vote by post or email using proxy forms. The Annual Report and Accounts were adopted and there were no changes to the Executive Committee. The President, Capt. Sir Norman Lloyd Edwards was re-appointed,having indicated his willingness to continue.
ASSISTANT CURATE FOR THE CHURCH
Revd. Lorna Hanney has been appointed Assistant Curate and was priested in June at Llandaff Cathedral.
No dates or events have been scheduled yet for 2020, and it is unlikely that any will be possible. The church was temporarily closed in March due to the coronavirus outbreak. It reopened for the first time since then for Sunday worship on 27th September, and it is hoped that 10am Sunday worship will be now able to continue each week. Other than that, the church will remain closed at all other times until something more becomes possible.
