Here are key areas where we can grow in our faith in Christ and in serving others because of our faith. We can do this better together than on our own. What would you like to take forward? Complete the form below as the first step:
Exploring what it means to pray in greater depth. There are historic, traditional spiritual practices for Christians which we do not all find easy, but which have invigorated the spiritual lives of millions. Would you like to find out more?
Discovering more about some person or group doing something to advance the kingdom somewhere in the world. We might then be able to support them, even if only through our concern and interest. It has never been easier to find out what people are doing, but we do need to try. We might even find something that excites us as a congregation so we can put our collective weight behind it.
Sensing where and in what way God is calling us each to serve him. There has never, in the past hundred years, been both a greater need nor a greater recognition of the importance of the ministry of all God’s people in the Church of Scotland. Full-time paid service is fast disappearing; if any widespread ministry will remain, it will be carried out by people like you. What is God calling you to do?
Taking early steps towards commitment. Jesus expects people will say they are his followers. What does that mean, what will it involve and how can we do what he asks us in today’s world? This foundational thinking supports all the rest and may lead to church membership or a renewed commitment to vows taken before.
Developing what we are doing together as God’s people to serve our community. Let’s not downplay our role – we are here, and we provide worship and activities for people of all ages, we give a bit to all our local schools and we share our premises with others. However, are struggling to keep doing all we do, and it may be we need to check that we are doing the right things, and encourage others to join in.
Where will you begin to explore your part in this?
