Dear Friends

On Sunday, we had a joyful celebration of the church’s year with many photographs adding to the reports that captured the richness of life as part of God’s people. There are so many different ways in which people give of their gifts and time and it was good to say thank you and to celebrate the joy of being a follower of Jesus here at HTC.

There were also three areas that we thought about looking forward.

 

The first followed on from our women’s world day of prayer and a commitment to our environment – in particular, the issue of avoiding the use of plastic where we can. There have been many shocking stories in the news about ubiquitous plastic waste and that can be felt very keenly on a small island with 10,000s of visitors each year! So, we have all agreed to seek to be a part of the solution, not the problem.

 

Our second discussion was about a funding proposal we have submitted to the diocesan mission fund to match fund a project to set up the Logos Café in the church library; an exciting vision that aims at placing HTC more firmly on the map as the place to meet. Plans include a refurbishment and opening up of the Library room, providing disabled access and toilets and plans to open the café 8 – 2, five days a week. Our hope and prayer is that we can encourage many more people to pass through the doors of HTC, make new friends and contacts, broaden our community. Please pray for this as it is considered by the diocese. More to follow… hopefully!

 

Our third discussion was about the development of congregational worship leaders. At Pentecost, as part of the service, we will have a time when we can pray for direction for those among our congregation who can be recognised and empowered to help develop the worship, prayer and teaching life of our church. We are very blessed by many gifts and we would like to encourage and recognise these and form a team of people, blessed for and by their work, who together can develop the worship, prayer and teaching life of the church. After all, why should the Chaplain have all the fun!

 

So please be praying about these three important areas in the weeks ahead; playing our part to care for God’s beautiful world, developing our mission and ministry through the Logos Café and encouraging and empowering those among us to use their gifts to see God’s Kingdom grow.

With peace and blessings,

Jules.
