A central part of our worship together as a church is the proclamation and exposition of God’s word, and our services themselves are designed to teach us more about Jesus and the gospel.
We are also committed to proclaiming “the whole counsel of God” in a variety of ways to build each other up, bearing in mind our different ages, circumstances, Christian experience and maturity, and the variety of ways in which church members are gifted by God.
Some of what we do to that end includes:
We put on specific training events. In the past this has included a 10 week training course to help people lead Bible studies, a day on street outreach and once a year on young people’s ministry. Often we use outside specialists.
We also encourage people to go deeper. At the moment a small group is working it’s way through the Westminster Confession of Faith and in the recent past a reading group worked through Herman Bavinck’s Sin and Salvation in Christ. There are other opportunities to be stretched, but always with the aim of wider service to the Church.
