Annual General Meeting
The 2019 Annual General Meeting, originally scheduled for Sunday, March 29, 2020, was postponed by the closure of the Church due to COVID-19. The meeting will be held on Sunday, October 18, 2020, at 1:00 pm, by Zoom.
As you may know, Zoom is a popular video-conferencing platform. Once you have completed registration on EventBrite for your “ticket” to the AGM, you will be provided access to the Zoom link and access information. If you have never used Zoom before, we highly encourage you to get set up (by following the link) prior to October 18th.
Before the meeting, you will want to review your copy of the Annual Report which was circulated in March 2020, or consult it on the Britannia United Church website at https://britanniaunitedchurch.ca/annual-report-2019/

Some people have been wondering how to make their weekly donations while the Church is closed. Donations can be made by check (mailed to the Church), PAR (Pre Authorized Remittance), Canada Helps, or by etransfer from your account directly to the Church. To make an etransfer, log in to your bank’s website, select etransfer, add “BRITANNIA UNITED CHURCH” as a payee. Verify that it selects “email@example.com” as the email to use. If you wish the entire deposit is made to the general fund, nothing more is required. If you want some to go to M&S or Sunday School (or any other fund) as well as some to the general fund, just put that information in the Notes section when you make your payment. There are no security questions required to make the transfer.
