Within the church, our care for one another is an important expression of the love of Jesus. Our care for one another is expressed mainly through a web of relationships. Of course, that also means a responsibility for each of us to get involved in the life of the church, so that there are opportunities for relationships of care to develop for and from each one of us.
Our Pastoral Equipping aims are to:
- engender a culture of love among us, in which we bear one another’s burdens
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfil the law of Christ”
(The Bible – Galatians 6:4)
- Equip people to stand strong and mature in Christ
“Equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature”
(The Bible – Ephesians 4:12-13)
