Sabeel-Kairos AGM 2019

The Annual Sabeel-Kairos AGM will take place towards the end of the day, and we invite all members to stay and take part and vote for new trustees and hear about our news.  If you are not yet a member but would like to vote and join in, please complete the membership form and pay here.

We are expecting to have space on the board for a Treasurer and another Trustee.  As well as someone with an accounting/ finance background to be treasurer, we are looking for another trustee with potential fundraising, HR or charity governance experience.  We welcome all people to stand for these positions at the AGM, from anywhere in the country, all ethnic backgrounds, ages and denominations.  Please consider standing for one of these roles to help support our small, but dynamic and energetic charity!
