Central Finance Board - 50th Birthday!
On Thursday 29th April I had been invited to give the address at a Thanksgiving Service in Wesley's Chapel to celebrate the Golden Anniversary of the Central Finance Board of the Methodist Church (known within Methodism as the CFB). The service was led by the Revd Jennifer Potter.
The service was very well attended (and shared the spot with Wesley's Chapel's regular Thursday lunchtime service). Over the years CFB has become very well respected for its professionalism, wisdom and ethical way of dealing with the Church's resources. We gave thanks for all those who serve and offer their expertise and experience, both paid staff and volunteers, in CFB and other parts of the Church's life.
The service was followed by an excellent lunch, to which all were invited. Many thanks to Bill Seddon and his colleagues at CFB - for the occasion and the lunch, but much more for what they do so well, on our behalf.
