Change

I was reading a book recently that talked about change within the life of churches and organisations. The comment was made that the danger for churches is not looking ahead and seeing the changes that God is wanting to bring, both within our lives and within the life of the church or organisation.

You do not have to think far back to realise that how we think of church, how we worship, the way we worship has all changed significantly in the last couple of decades.

For me I see two dangers. One is that we start to change things for change sake. The other, is that we are too slow and don’t make the changes that are needed as the church grows, or as the Holy Spirit calls us to minister into a new areas or ….

Which continually brings me to the words of Jesus to each of the seven churches in Revelation, “Let Him who has ears to hear, hear what the Spirit is saying to the church.”

Please pray for the elders and ministry leaders as we seek to discern the voice of the Spirit leading us into new places, new ministries and new peoples. 

“Join Me”

Which leads me to a new thing that has started within the life of the church.

“Join Me” are various groups that meet for a period of time around different interests, activities or hobbies to enable people to meet one another. These groups may be for a few weeks or longer. They are being run to enable people to explore new or different things that maybe you have never considered before. It is also a new way of meeting people and making new friends. As the church continues to grow, the reality is that we cannot know everyone within the church, but “Join Me” is an opportunity to learn, grow, meet new people and have some fun along the way (yes fun is allowed in church!).

So keep your eye out and see what is of interest to you and put a name to that face you have seen at church for some time!

Shalom
