At our annual conference last month, we held our AGM and election of new officers to our board of Trustees and members of our Council.
We formally welcomed our new General Secretary designate, Revd Jonathan Draper, who takes up this new paid, part-time role from 1st September 2017.
The AGM approved our Annual Report for 2016 and the following update of our Charitable Objects, which has been approved with the Charity Commission:
Following a competitive selection process, the trustees of Modern Church are pleased to announce the appointment of the Very Revd Dr Jonathan Draper as General Secretary of Modern Church.
Jonathan Draper, currently the Dean of Exeter Cathedral, announced his retirement from that role in March this year. He is currently on sabbatical, and will formally begin his new role with Modern Church on 1st September 2017.
This is a new opportunity for Modern Church as this will be a paid part-time post for the first time in Modern Church’s 119 year history.

William Shakespeare died on 3rd May 1616, and this centenary celebration prompted a Modern Church conference, ‘Performing the Faith: Shakespeare, the Theatre and Theology Today’ in July 2016, a flavour of which can be gained from the variety of articles in this volume.
