Riki Owens-Bennett’s contract with us finished last Friday (January 31st). We are grateful for the service and skills Riki has given to both the Community Programs and the Church Office under that agreement. In a meeting with Rev Cogs and Ian Penny [Chair of Council] this week, Rev Phil signed a new, revised short-term contract on behalf of Council with Riki. This contract and a new Job Description condenses Riki’s two previous contracts into one as an Administrative Support Officer for a total 24 hours/week, reduced to reflect financial constraints and altered CP management roles. Office Hours will be 9:30am-3pm Tuesday to Friday. This new contract expires at the end of April, by which time we hope to be in a clearer position as to the future of the outcomes from the Community Program Review are worked through.
