Original notice (published on 4th October 2017):

Incumbents, treasurers and PCC members are invited to join the archdeacons at a seminar and information day to be held in their respective archdeaconry in March 2018. 

The seminars will be run in the morning by leading investment and insurance houses, and will look at how to make the most of funds, what should be insured and how, and the types of bank and savings accounts available to charities. 

Attendees will also have an opportunity to network and share ideas and experiences over lunch, and the invited speakers plus representatives from the diocesan Assets & Trusts department will be on hand in the afternoon for discussion on an individual or small-group basis.

The venues will be confirmed nearer the time, but initial details of the events in each archdeaconry are as follows:

  • Lincoln - in or around Horncastle on 1st March 2018

  • Boston - in or around Spalding on 13th March 2018

  • Stow and Lindsey - in or around Barnetby on 14th March 2018.

Those unable to attend the event in their respective archdeaconry are invited to attend one of the other dates in the diocese. Further details will follow as they are finalised, and invitations will be sent out by email in December 2017. Please ensure that all incumbent, treasurer and PCC member information is updated and correct so as to avoid any delay in the receipt of the email invitation.

Please direct any enquiries to either Ms Mickey Tucker-Lowe (Assets & Trusts) on 01522 50 40 61 or Mrs Sue Wilson (PA to the Archdeacons) on 01522 50 40 39.
