Helen Kirk: March 2018
In her Pastoral Letter in the Circuit magazine, Rev. Helen Kirk writes...
"From time to time we all need to be reminded of who we are; to step back and reflect upon the things we are called to be and to do. We do this as individuals but we also need to do this as a church. This can be summed up in the Our Calling statements of the church:
- The church exists to increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love
- The church exists to help people grow and learn as Christians through mutual support and care
- The church exists to be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice
- The church exists to make more followers of Jesus Christ.
...I hope that we will be inspired once more to remember who we are, why we are here and to fulfil God's calling for us as a Church."
