TSSF website project

This website is currently being reviewed, updated and (we hope) improved.

  • If you can’t find something where it used to be, try using the “Search” box near the top right of each page. If that doesn’t help email webmaster@tssf.org.uk and let us know about the problem.
  • If you have comments or suggestions about changes we have made or about changes you think would be good, email webmaster@tssf.org.uk.
  • One of the aims of the website project is to make maintaining and updating the website easier; this should mean that people without much IT expertise could contribute to the work of the web team and we should be glad to hear from Tertiaries who think they might be able to offer some time to this work.

Election of Minister Provincial

Advance warning –

Nominations have not yet closed (30 hours to go) but there will be an election in order to discern which candidate will take on this important role of service to the Order. Voting papers will be send to Areas and put on the TSSF website later this week.

Area Teams may wish to plan how to ensure that all Professed Tertiaries are enabled to consider the candidates’ information and excercise their votes prayerfully, as they encouraged to do.

Voting will close at the end of Tuesday, 17th January 2017.

Election result: Provincial Secretary (November 2016)

The Provincial Secretary elect is Martin Allen. He will take up office at the end of the Provincial Chapter in February.

Votes cast:
Martin Allen    229 votes
Garry Ward      153 votes
382 votes out of 1786 possible were cast, 21.39% of those eligible (disappointing but in line with several recent elections).

TSSF owes a debt of gratitude to both candidates for offering themselves for this service.
