Kate Rayner has been appointed as the new Communication Co-ordinator for The Mother Church. Below is the text of an email sent to the Australia and New Zealand field:
Dear Clerks in Australia and New Zealand
I am writing to introduce myself as your new TMC Communication Coordinator for Australia and New Zealand – continuing the work that Edwina Aubin has most ably done the last 4 years.
I have been a member of First Church Adelaide for 6 years and, as many of you, I have served in a variety of roles, including present work as full time Librarian of the Christian Science Reading Room here in Adelaide.
Although this position is not new, it may be helpful to summarise the broad scope of the TMC Communication Coordinator’s responsibility to the field:
- To provide customer-service type assistance to churches, societies, groups, members and individuals who ask for help in getting questions answered and issues resolved by The Mother Church and The Christian Science Publishing Society.
- To share correspondence from The Mother Church with contacts in the field and, as appropriate, to share correspondence within the Field.
- Upon request, to visit and talk with individuals, Mother Church members, informal groups, societies and churches in their respective fields.
If you have a question about the scope of this role, please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to assist.
I am reminded of the words from Hymn 105 “Help us to help each other, Lord, Each other’s cross to bear.” I look forward to growing with everyone into this role of assistance and support for all those in the Christian Science field in Australia and New Zealand, and in knowing that “whatever blesses one blesses all”, that this care and love expressed between us will ripple into the world.
