Message from Mel
Mel's Induction
“I thank my God every time I remember you. In
all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with
joy because of your partnership in the gospel
from the first day until now, being confident of
this, that he who began a good work in you will
carry it on to completion until the day of Christ
Jesus.” Philippians 1:3-6
For those who are wanting to get along and
support Mel as she steps into a new Ministry
role, Col and Val Pickworth have arranged a
bus that has 10 spare seats. Please speak to
Col ASAP to book your seat.
The above scripture describes succinctly my
thoughts on my departure. It has been a privilege and an honor to have been given the gift of
pastoral leadership with you all. We have
shared many adventures, challenges, laughter
and tears along the way, for which I am grateful
and thank God for. I am confident that the God
who has begun a good work in you will see it to
completion and I am confident in your call to
“Lead people to fullness of life in Christ”. May
God lead you forward as you continue to learn
what it looks like to help others find a full and
rounded life in and through Christ.
Induction Service is to be at 7pm on Friday

Cleaning Roster
We have 2 people at least who cannot continue on
our cleaning roster, so there is a great opportunity for
others to serve in this way. If we have enough folk,
you only get a turn every 6 weeks or so. Please see
Security Ettiquette
If any group or person decides to use an area of the
church for a meeting at the last minute, PLEASE let
the caretaker on that week know, as them not knowing about last minute meetings has caused problems
in the past for them.
Thank You
