Governance Report & Information

Out of Synod 2016, Diocesan Council asked for a governance review on GFS to be undertaken and presented back to Synod.  This was not possible last year as the final meeting had not been held with the Diocesan Secretary and the Independent Authority – Just Consulting to finalise the report.
 
The report was completed and has been with Mr Keith Stephens since 7th November 2017.  The full report with additional ‘Extra Report for noting’ was presented to the GFS Executive Committee at their November meeting.  A link to the report and other documents can be found here.

130th Anniversary Afternoon Tea and Evensong

Please join us on Sunday 30th September 2018 2pm for afternoon tea and 5pm for Evensong.  This is our last celebration in our 130th year so please come along to this free event to help us celebrate this milestone.
 

We are asking all the parishes who have had GFS Branches or KidsPlus+ Groups in them at some time in the past 130 years if they still have any banners from their branch/group and to possibly send along a representative. It would be wonderful to have a representative there from each of the parishes listed below to help us celebrate this remarkable achievement.

We are excited to have Archbishop Kay and Rev’d Canon Cheryl Selvage – GFS Australia President with us to help us celebrate the occasion.

RSVP to the GFS Office on 9202 1627 or email info@gfsperth.com.au to let us know if you are coming for catering purposes by the 27th of September.
