In an attempt to accommodate the invitation from the Epworth, Creston-Red Harbour and Burin Pastoral Charges in hosting our annual meeting, we have had to move our meeting date. Last week, we asked you to save a date. Unfortunately, the date we asked you to save interferes with a event being hosted by the East District Christian Development Committee so we have had to work with our inviting Pastoral Charges to secure another date.
