Abridged Draft Booklet

Please see attached the Draft abridged version of the proposal the partnership is compiling to pass to Brentwood at Advent this year. This is a proposal and I would welcome any comments you may have to make, or questions, which I will do my best to answer. The Stewards and Priests have a meeting on 8th October and they are looking for feedback. Please do take the time and make the effort to contribute something. Fr David talked about “attitude” on Saturday evening, I know that a positive attitude achieves results.
