Oh yes, a meeting with the lovely DCC and unanimous vote to apply for a faculty! Of course, this doesn't mean it will happen that quickly- this is the Church of England after all! But it is the first step towards becoming more visible and up to date! The old board and it is really rather rough, still has the number and name of the team rector who retired several years ago. I suspect he will be happy not to be the contact person for the church.
Meeting the PCC on Wednesday and then we will get on with the paperwork. Now there is something exciting to look forward to.
