SUPPORT IN THE WINDWARD ISLANDS
The Fellowship of St John has been supporting the Church in the West Indies for generations. In recent years we have been working with the parishes, schools and societies in the Diocese of the Windward Islands. Welcome to this short film made by the people of Grenada that follows Fr Charles as he sees some of the Fellowship supported projects – from historic buildings, to a school’s sports ground, mass in the island’s prison to the National Memorial Service for the late Queen. The film includes a parish music group reflecting on their own ministry – hopefully it may give you an idea of how you could start a discussion in the context of your own ministry.
TRUSTEES WHO'S WHO
The Trustees are elected annually by the charitable company’s members. The charitable company is comprised of members of SSJE, FSJ and those who are in agreement with the aims of the company and who are co-opted. The Trustees meet quarterly to transact business and consider applications. The charity has the services of an administrator and accountant.
