2017-12-4 TO ALL CONGREGATIONS IN BRITAIN AND IRELAND Re: Changes to Circuits
by wifibandit 38 Replies latest watchtower beliefs
Due to the increase we have witnessed over the past few years, a number of circuits have grown. Also, many of our foreign-language congregations are now part of European-wide circuits enjoying circuit visits in their own language. To ensure that circuits in Britain and Ireland are a similar size, commencing September 1, 2018, the majority of circuits will be adjusted and renamed.
They are doing a remarkable job in the selling of Kingdom Halls and amalgamating of congregations with all this increase over the past few years.
Since the change in circuits will take place from Sept. 1, 2018, it may indicate that there is still a lot of ongoing work in Kingdom Hall sales and adjusting sizes of congregations and much of it will settle down after that date.

Many thanks again Wifibandit.
As Listener suggests, the Circuit changes probably imply that the Kingdom Hall bargain sale will rapidly increase over the next 6-9 months, so that the "consolidated/merged" congregations can be morphed into the new "consolidated/merged" Circuits.
All double speech.
Larger circuits can mean fewer cos needed. Saves a. Few quid.
I think it's more likely that with the merging congregations, there's larger distances between them so they're having to re-jiggle the circuits.
Jehovah's progressive organisation. Well I never. Someone please remind of what Scripture it is that refers to Jehovah's organisation.
a cull of CO's must be on the way, be interesting to see who and when the axe will fall.
"Some of the new Circuits will be derived from Congregations from two or three of the original Circuits".
This cannot be because of growth ! as there are limits on numbers at Assembly Halls, and on availability of the Halls, this means that they have far fewer Congregations, and far fewer members than before !
Ah look at the numbers. Its not cuz of a Great Increase :)
But the R&F will belive anything.
