From The Office
Acts 6:1 In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Hellenistic Jews among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food. 2 So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, “It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables.
The demands placed on the Church are not a new phenomenon. The pastoral care of the community, the care of the vulnerable and the ministry of the word. All equally important in terms of reflecting the mission and ministry of Jesus. Some parts can get more attention than others. The expectations may be more than capability and capacity allows.
We have always walked the hard balance carefully, not always successfully but mostly faithfully. Trying hard to not neglect one part over another. I am always grateful for those who are journeying with us in God’s family. Living faithfully in service of Jesus for the glory of his kingdom.
Vaccine pass no longer required however face masks are to be worn.
As a church we seek to be trusting in God, reaching out in service, united in love, encouraging one another.
