Stewardship: The Whole of Life

Pastor Andrew recently completed a sermon series on the theme of Stewardship and shared a wonderful resource called the "Stewardship: The Whole of Life" which we can use to reflect on the various areas of our lives and how they fit together. For us the segments of the wheel radiate out from the hub, which is our relationship with God through his Son, Jesus Christ.

“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life - your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life-and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.” – Romans 12:1,2


COVID is still in our community

- Masks are strongly encouraged in indoor public places

- We still encourage good hand hygiene and physical distancing

- Please do not attend Church or other events if you are unwell

- We encourage our Communion Helpers and Wardens to continue with masks/gloves for Communion distribution until the end of September

It is important that we respect everyone, whether they choose to wear a mask or not. It is not mandated - but it is strongly encouraged.
