A team of pastoral visitors support the church ministry by visiting all church members and the greater church community at last every few months as they deliver the Looking Ahead Magazines. They call in on those who can’t get to church through illness more often and pass on prayer requests to the Phone Prayer Chain and the E-Mail Prayer Chain.
The Pastoral Secretary is Gwen Coley.
Mission Leadership Team
A small group from all sections of the church meet every 1 or 2 months to come up with ideas of ways of enable our Church to be more relevant and accessible to our wider community.
We have looked into changes to the foyer, to help show what the church does and encourage them to cross the threshold of the church sanctuary. A TV Monitor ‘advertises’ upcoming events and postcard style leaflets are to be made for each church group.
Cafe style Church and Movie nights are to be trialed.
