Mentoring


We would really like to see mentoring well established within the church. Mentoring is a form of discipleship, which aims to unlock the God-given potential within another person. In practical terms this involves spending time with someone on a regular basis, doing an activity of your choice (e.g. going for a drink/playing a sport) and getting to know them. You will support and challenge them to develop their skills, discover their passions and grow in their faith. It is a purposeful relationship which encourages someone to take steps in order to go further with God.
 
If you would like a mentor or like to be a mentor (or both!) see one of the elders. You can of course approach someone yourself about mentoring, but we ask that you make the eldership aware of any mentoring relationships which are established due to the duty of care which we have as a church to the individuals in our congregation. 
 
Looking for community?
...Join a smallgroup !


If you're thinking "Hey! I need some Christian community!  I don't just want to see my Christian family once a week!" then don't sit at home but join one of our fantastic small groups! We presently have several small groups that meet in various parts of the city on different days.
