Mobilising people for generous service

All followers of Jesus are to bring the life and love of Jesus in service to the world he loves.

All of us can, all of us are needed. Each one of us has a unique opportunity in how we make this contribution.

No one is ‘superfluous to requirements’.

What is your unique contribution?

Community

Who do you connect with?

You can Commit to Care!

It doesn't take programs to demonstrate God's love. It takes people noticing needs and caring for one another. This is to be encouraged and celebrated!

At times people may not have the support they require. For these people our Pastoral Care Team connect those in need with those who can help. You can register to be a person the Pastoral care team could connect with to provide care.

You could show care in the following ways

Prayer

Pray on the behalf of others.

  • Support people by bringing their concerns and needs to our Gracious God in prayer.

One on One Care

Build a caring relationship with another person.

  • Be a voice on the phone or a friend to have a coffee with as people journey through easy and hard times.
  • Be present, listen and pray when someone is sick, lonely or elderly

Practical Care

Make a difference by helping practically.

  • Meals can make a huge difference in times of need.
  • Transport – Assisting people in bringing them to church or medical appointments can encourage connection and help.
  • Gardening – provide gardening to people in need or in service of our Church community.
  • Handy Skills – provide painting, carpentry, general house maintenance, trade skills to people in need or in service of our Church community.

Creative Care

Use creative gifts to demonstrate God's love.

  • This could be making and writing cards for people, a lawyer willing to donate time and expertise on occasions, a musician willing to play for people who are lonely or in grief, helping when someone has computer issues.
