Opportunities

Baptism visitors

Having previously asked if there were people who were interested in helping us welcome the families of children being baptised by becoming baptism visitors, we'll mention it again in case anyone wants to come forward. 

Prayers for healing

We are also considering offering prayers for healing at some of our Sunday services. If anyone is interested in learning some more, please speak to David or Sue.

Learning more about our Faith

Take up for the Way of Life courses has not been as strong as we would have liked.  If our churches are to flourish they need to be places where we can all talk about our faith.  

What would help you to talk about your faith more confidently?  Bible study? Alpha course? Christian Basics? Prayer Group? 

If we don't speak about faith how will new people share it? Please speak to David or Sue.

Pioneering in the Group with Mel

We are very fortunate to have Mel working with us as a group. It would be good to establish a small team around her that were interested in helping the church reach out beyond our walls. If you are interested please talk to one of the ministry team.
