Church Mission Plan Review

The Members’ Meeting in October received a report from the church elders of the work done so far on the review of the church Mission Plan.  It was agreed that this will be discussed at the next Members’ Meeting on 28th January and that the whole congregation be encouraged to think about and discuss the plan prior to that meeting.

 

Copies of the Mission Plan will be available after morning worship.  Please do take one, consider the Mission Plan and the questions in the introduction and come along to one of the open sessions to discuss the plan.

There will be opportunity during the coffee morning on Saturday 13th January 2018 to meet with others to discuss the Mission Plan. Please do come along to one of these meetings.

 

This is an immensely important piece of work that will have a huge impact on the work of Christ Church for years to come.  I encourage everyone to read the document and engage in the conversation about the mission of Christ Church.

Church Café – Your Café?

The church café has been a great success, offering a meeting point for people from different groups using the premises and visitors who just like our café.  Though we employ a café manager, Ruth, she depends heavily on volunteers to keep the café running smoothly.

 

One of the lead volunteers will soon be leaving to begin training as a nurse.  We desperately need more volunteers to fill an Aroona shaped hole on Thursdays.  If you think you could help please see Nick or Claire, or pop in to the café and speak with Ruth.

 

Two volunteers willing to work one day a fortnight would be good, or four volunteers who could each help once a month; but one person willing to help one day each week would be wonderful. Please consider carefully if this could be part of your Christian service. Remember the café is not just the ‘Church Café, it is ‘Your Café’.

 

‘Looking ahead’

The service on Sunday July 30th will be led by members of the Worship Planning Group. In this service we will be exploring the theme of ‘Parables’ and to help us to do this we will have a more informal arrangement of seating than usual.’
