“As a church we are always ready for divine surprises and sparks of inspiration.  Yet for this next season we believe Jesus wants our church to focus on the following areas:

“Establishing powerful and effective rhythms of prayer within the life of our church community”

In Practice:

  • Experimenting with creative prayer gatherings to find those with life and energy from the Holy Spirit. For example:
    • ONE – midday prayer (weekly)
    • Sunday nights (monthly)
    • Saturday prayer breakfasts (quarterly)
    • Encourage prayer trio’s
  • Develop and train a prayer ministry team to serve in the life of the church
  • Launch a prayer text (SMS) ministry

“Strengthening the church community by helping people connect with each other and find a place to call home”

In Practice:

  • Launching ‘Connect groups’ that focus on building a culture of discipleship within the life of our church
  • Organising whole church weekend’s away for extended teaching, ministry and fellowship and otherevents such as breakfasts, suppers, sports groups or interest groups of various descriptions.
