We have a long history; this year we have celebrated our 350th anniversary and have much to give thanks for. But now we look forward and are trying to discern, “Where do we grow from here?”
Between 35 and 45 folk meet on a Sunday morning; the majority of whom are retired which brings its challenges. But we have good links with the community through hiring out our extensive premises.
Perhaps our focus should be on older folk? A new retirement complex is opening behind the church. Pray for wisdom and courage to reach out through events such as our annual ‘Holiday at Home’.
And we have just appointed a Church Administrator. Pray that this will help free up time and energy for mission. Our Messy Church-type events enable contact with many families. Pray for opportunities to build on these occasional encounters.
