Hi! My name is Mary-Anne.
I will likely be your first point of contact for Bethany Baptist Church and our community. If I can’t answer your questions I know someone who can!
My tasks include producing and e-mailing the weekly Church bulletin, creating the screen projections for the worship service, and issuing the Church Directory and Annual General Meetings Report to the Bethany community. I also maintain the booking calendar for events held at Bethany and financial records for the Treasurer and Auditors.
It is my privilege to assist our Interim Pastor in secretarial and administrative duties.
