1. A report on the 2012 annual council for the Trans-European Division:
Audrey Andersson, TED Executive Secretary, presented the Division’s statistical report showing the membership of the Trans-European Division was 82,768 at June 2012. “This is a net increase of 911 over the past year. Eight of the 11 unions and three attached fields saw a decline in membership over the past year a trend which could be reversed if we could improve the retention of our existing members. For every 3.3 people baptised one person leaves the church.
