Message from the office

Hello,

My name is Vix and I am the new administrator. Thank you for your reports from the World Day of Prayer, I have enjoyed reading your stories and looking at your photos from the EWNI service. It has been encouraging to hear about people being able to join together in fellowship after so long.

We are part of a 24-7, 365 day a year, women-led prayer movement, a real Blessing to us. Let us continue to share this locally, nationally and internationally.

Blessings,

Vix

Administrator

Office expansion wins civic award

The original office was proving too small.

The staff were finding it very difficult to fulfil their roles and store all the paperwork – especially all the envelopes for Gift Aid, because they have to be stored for a period of seven years.

The committee looked at the possibility of moving premises but this proved to be too expensive. It was decided an extension would be the best option.

The WDP Office building in Tunbridge Wells won the 2012 award for the refurbishment of, and the extensions to, the building.

Who are we?

 

So what do we do?
(a long list – let’s try to précis it)

collate and manage Returns from the Day of Prayer each year;

deal with the Gift Aid envelopes, typing up their details and submitting claims to HMRC;

liaise with National Committee regarding all the materials, typing, proofing, ordering, obtaining copyright as necessary and liaising with printers;

calculate stock needs each year;

pack and post orders and Preparation Day parcels;

deal with correspondence;

manage the finances for the Movement including grant applications;

liaise with outside bodies for example the RNIB regarding Braille copies of the Order of Service;

send materials to the senior Royal ladies;

liaise with the International Office in New York and act on behalf of the European Representatives on the International Committee;

manage the building on behalf of the Trustees, keeping equipment updated and the fabric of the building in good order, liaising with suppliers as necessary.
