Treasurer  -  the Churches of St John's and Woodmancote want to allow our Treasurer to step aside from his present role and are seeking to appoint a new person in his place. The essential heart of the role is that of weekly book-keeping; the treasurer also plays the leading role in compiling the annual accounts (for which computerised systems and the help of others experienced in this field are of invaluable assistance); lastly, there is the role of reporting periodically to the PCC or other Church committees. If you might be willing to serve in this way, and would like to know more, please speak without commitment to the Rector, the Revd Andrew Doye. 

50/50 Draw The winning numbers for the month of October 2017 are 1st - 36; 2nd - 41 and 3rd - 56.
