Annual Report Booklet

Again this year Gail has compiled a detailed record of the main activities of our Church, using the reports of various leaders or representatives from each aspect. I hope everyone will take 10 minutes to read it.

It is for all to read, reflect on, pray about, and as appropriate join in with. Inevitably, some aspects/activities reported in a sentence are actually quite big operations and are time-consuming. For example, the cleaning of the church is not a 5-minute job, even when there are two or three doing it together!  Similarly, social activities which receive a tiny listing in the booklet may have taken many hours to prepare, and may consume several hours for those attending. So don’t judge by the size of the entry!

The overall impression is extremely positive. When you pause to consider the totality of what goes on, thanks to the efforts of so many, it is quite stunning. There is much loyalty and devotion here, and many faithful people do their bit. Those who assist are the hands or ears or eyes of the body referred to by Paul when he wrote:

If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. And if they were all one member, where would the body be? But now indeed there are many members, yet one body. (1 Corinthians 12:15–20)

We are “church” in different ways. Some people value a bit of discussion about their faith. For them perhaps a bit of Bible Study. Others like their worship a bit more relaxed. For them perhaps Christingle services. Others like to always combine a social aspect with their worship. For them perhaps an Evensong  followed by Burns Night supper or a Harvest Evensong followed by Harvest supper. And so it goes on.

If you total up all those who are part of our worshipping  community, even if not here every Sunday, we serve a large number of people. Combine those with folk who come for Weddings, Funerals and Baptisms, and also those who use our hall, well the sky is the limit!
