We are pleased to release the approved program for Assembly Day at Riverlife on 30th October. It is going to be a busy day with a lot of material to cover, so please read up and be ready to go! Some key issues with the program have been set out below.
QB Assembly 2020

Please note that you need to register with us by Sunday night, 25th October. A COVID-Safe Management Plan will be in place for the event.
When you register, you will receive an email confirmation which you may print out, sign, and bring with you.
Simply hand your email confirmation to the registration table on the way in.
Seat allocation will be sent to you a few days before the event which will ensure you are placed with your church or group, in a COVID-safe manner
We will also provide morning tea, lunch, a coffee and drinks voucher delivered in a COVID-safe manner based on your registration.
Registration will be open from 8:00am, with the session starting promptly at 9:00.
Coffee will be available for you on arrival ($3 to purchase or registered attenders may use their voucher).
All documents can be download in advance
The opening session is a Celebration service including times of singing, devotion, communion and thanksgiving, and will conclude with a significant moment in QB history – the induction of our inaugural Director of the QB Movement – Jason Elsmore.
After Morning Tea:
Our Chair will take us through most of the business of the day – including the minutes of the last AGM and THREE Special Assemblies that have been held since. The appointment of the Board and Nominating Committee members will be voted upon, and the financial reports for the last two years presented along with the all important COVID-times budget for 2020/21.
We have two really important matters to deal with.
Firstly, John Sweetman will talk about the QB Movement Strategic Plan. Assembly will need to adopt the strategic goals set out in this document (see Paper J for the details of these).
We have also attached the overall Strategic Plan for your reference so you can see the outworking of these goals in Paper K. Paper K does not require Assembly approval, but is included to give you the broader picture of how the Strategic Plan will be implemented.
Then it will be my turn to talk you through the Constitution changes and ask for your approval of this very significant document. Again, we have included two papers for your reference on this – the summary of changes is Paper L which you will recognise from earlier Network articles, and the complete proposed revised constitution in final format is Paper M.
We will spend some time talking about the reasons why these changes have been proposed, and hopefully place you in a good position to endorse this document.
If you are unable to attend Assembly in person, there will be a live stream of the event made available. Unfortunately, our constitution does not allow logging in remotely to be regarded as attending, so you will not be able to count towards the quorum or vote. However, we will provide a facility for remote attenders to ask questions, if they are a member of Assembly. If you wish to take advantage of this facility, you will also need to register with us in advance and we will provide the appropriate links for your involvement.
When you register for assembly you will receive an email confirmation and a morning tea, lunch, a coffee and drinks voucher delivered in a COVID-safe manner based on your registration.
If you are not registered you will be admitted on the day subject to seating availability, possibly in an overflow area if numbers require it. We will also not provide food, due to COVID-Safe restrictions, although there are a number of eating options in the area which you can take advantage of.
Please bring along: The email confirmation, sent to you upon registration, which you may print out, sign, and hand to the registration table on the way in .
Yes! When you register, you will receive a seat allocation a few days before the event which will ensure you are placed with your church or group, in a COVID-safe manner.
