Scope and Content

Contents of a folder labelled 'MF Correspondence 1998-1999'. Routine correspondence, including documents relating to membership, the code of practice for ministers and congregations, the Ministerial Fellowship centenary dinner, procedures to be followed following the death of a minister, the design of a questionnaire to be used by congregations seeking to attract a new minister, the Benevolent Fund, and a document on 'Unitarian Ministers and Discipline'. Also documents on particular themes (see 'arrangement').

Arrangement

  • Correspondence to Vernon Marshall (secretary of the Ministerial Fellowship), much of it concerned with personal matters.
  • 'Conference'
  • 'AGM 98'
  • 'AGM Minutes'
  • 'Soton '98' [i.e. Southampton]
  • Correspondence relating to a dispute at a particular congregation.
