Paper A1: Plans for GA2018 and beyond
Paper A1 is an update paper, there is no resolution attached but several members of Mission Council wanted clarity on both the decision made and future plans.
Specific questions included: would the 2018 and subsequent Assemblies include a Children’s Assembly?; would the 2018 venue be fully accessible? (commenting that the 2016 venue, the Southport Convention Centre, had not been) and was there a possibility of Assembly being permanently located in one, fully accessible, venue? The point was also made that the Assembly arrangements committee seems to exist to tell the Church what Assembly it’s having, rather than respond to requests to deliver an Assembly that will clearly benefit the life of the denomination.
