The Managing Trustee Annual Returns Checklist - We have made some significant changes to the Annual Returns update to help make it more efficient and relevant to the current needs of the wider Church. One of the most significant changes users will notice is the drastic reduction in the number of questions. The questions now focus on Action for Hope and the mission of churches and circuits, which will be fed in to the work that the Connexional Team does and help assess the impact of these initiatives. However, the questions that were previously on the return have not entirely gone away. They now form The Managing Trustee Annual Returns Checklist (see below). This will make it easier for us to adapt the questions as the needs of the church change over time, but also make it easier for you to submit the information to your circuits and districts, but also store them for your own records. However, although the questions have been removed from the Annual returns, they may still assist you in fulfilling your obligations as a managing trustee. Please note that this is not a complete list, merely guidance to ensure that you keep in mind certain areas of responsibility on an annual basis. It is suggested that reference should be made to specific District or Circuit requirements.
