Circuit Management Group – SAVES

As part of Methodist advice on best practice for lay employees, including admin workers, it is recommended that each employee has a management group with whom they meet on a regular basis for support.

The SAVES (supporting volunteers and employees) subgroup of the circuit is recommending that one group covers both admin workers to ensure consistency in approach.

We need a minimum of 3 people to be on the group.

Please see attached terms of reference and role outline.

Please circulate to your church members and if anyone is interested or wants to know more ask them to contact Rev Melanie Greenall or Miss Eleanor Downie, joint leads, SAVES
