Church Life

For many of us, talking about our finances is a no-go area, yet as Christians we are called to be wise stewards of all that we have been given and that includes money. The money that is given to the church is used in many ways. It goes to support those who have been called to minister to the congregation as their vocation, it contributes to property upkeep costs and we also give away a significant portion to support many different projects and individuals that operate outside of our own congregation.

One of the privileges of belonging to a church community is the opportunity to share in what Paul calls this “grace of giving” (2 Corinthians 8:3-7). It’s a great way to feel connected with the practical work of the church and we believe that as we honour God in this key area of our lives, our own needs are met in sometimes quite miraculous ways.

For more information see the linked FAQ, the tabs below or contact our Treasurer.

“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7

Serving Together

If you’re just in the spot where God wants you, and doing what God has gifted you to do, it’s a good place to be.

We call it your spiritual gifting, or finding your ministry. Usually you’ll find it invigorating. Often it’s fun, certainly fulfilling, and definitely a blessing to others.

God made us for fruitfulness, and that’s that. The car park attendant who greets you cheerfully has found it. The member of a midweek small group who has joined others serving in the soup kitchen has made just the same discovery. You can expect a church in which we seek to be inspired by the Spirit to be bubbling up all the time with people doing things that somehow add up to a healthy functioning body that’s a great place to be, but is always pushing out beyond itself.

Each year we invite our members to consider in which areas they are gifted and able to serve. Rather than seeing this as a list of jobs waiting for people to do them, instead ask God “In what area of ministry and service do you want me to be fruitful?” We suggest that each person should discuss this with someone who knows you well, to seek their discernment as to your gifts for ministry. This may lead you to some exciting new adventure with God, and you’ll see why he’s put you in this church.

The latest ‘Together we can make a difference’ (known as 'TWCMAD', pronounced 'twookmad') response forms are linked with a separate children's form also available. Thank you for your willingness to serve in this way.

For some areas of ministry you may be asked to complete a Police Check, and a fillable PDF is linked for this purpose.
