  District 12 – David Thompson. Needs some help with communicant visits
 District 13 – Karl Malcolm Needs some help with communicant visits
  District 14 – Elizabeth Lewis, former districts 14 and 15 to be combined. Geoff Gordon willing to
visit Orr family at Hillsborough on his way home from work. Elizabeth to help Stephen McDonald,
district 2, with non-communicant visits.

With home group members taken out, and the number of elders available for visiting, the number of
communicant members to be visited in most districts is manageable, BUT 3 districts have 10 or 11
communicant families, is this too many?

Karl Malcolm’s district involves a lot of travelling, he may need help. This is the district that Wendy
helped with before.

However the numbers of non-communicant homes to be visited is, in 2 districts too high. To help
with this, we suggest a committee member or a pastoral care team visitor be used to help with this
visiting, which will only be twice each year. Need to check with Susan about pastoral care team

Sandra Martin’s group is the only one that does not have an elder as a member. While Sandra is
capable of giving out communion tokens and she, with the Jones, can provide pastoral care, there is
no link with session for any of these homes.

Is this a problem? – if it is

do we put them back into districts, which will add to the numbers to be visited,

or is there some other solution?
