Your new-look ADVANCE
May Assembly for Tasmanian Baptists
IMPORTANT INFORMATION RE OUR NEXT ASSEMBLY
We were to have met as a Union on Friday/Saturday May 8-9.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, and the restrictions placed on us by government authorities, we cannot meet in-person, as normal.
Secretaries have been informed of the process, outlined below.
This process allows for us to attend to the minimum necessary to enable the Union to function.
The proposed is a departure from our constitutional procedure. So the decisions made, and the process used, will be ratified at the next "normal" assembly, hopefully in October.
