We are very thankful for the dedicated work of the church family serving in so many different ways, some in organised roles, others quietly praying behind the scenes. We are a team where everyone has a part to play. Making use of the time and abilities which we are given is as much an aspect of Christian Stewardship as the use of our money.
Jon Drake preached a sermon in the series on The Holy Spirit on the theme of using the Gifts for Service, and you can listen to this on the page of Recorded Sermons (search for "June 2013")
Listed below are many of the ways you can consider Service in the Church. They are included on a form which you can download and if you would like information about new or different ways they can get involved please complete it and return it to the church office or one of the clergy.
If you are not sure what to get involved in, would like to talk with someone about your current commitments, or have ideas of other things we could be doing as a church please discuss it with the Clergy.
Here are some ways in which Church Members are already serving. Perhaps you also have some other suggestions?
